A lifelong labour of love for its conservationist owner, this unique train runs up steep grades, across four trestle bridges, along two spirals and a double switchback, and through two tunnels, finishing at the ‘Eye-full Tower'. The one-hour trip passes artworks and regenerating native forest – more than 17,000 natives have been planted, including 9000 kauri. Booking ahead is recommended in summer.

It’s worth lingering for the video about the extraordinary guy behind it all, well-known potter, the late Barry Brickell.
