Forgotten World Adventures Rail Carts
Experience a railway tour with a difference. In 1901 construction on the Stratford to Okahukura Railway Line began. Over a period of 32 years, 24 tunnels were carved using pick axes and shovels allowing the link from Stratford, the heart of the Taranaki region, to Taumarunui, the heart of King Country.
The railway line became an essential link to the outside world for the communities, businesses and farms that established in this remote country.
Forgotten World Adventures provides self-driven rail tours along the now decommissioned railway line in specially modified rail carts. Departing from Stratford or Taumarunui, enjoy a one or two-day tour exploring the deep hidden valleys of New Zealand's Forgotten World. The tours depart during the summer months of October through to April and truly are the best way to explore the Forgotten World.
