This three-night weekend special combines the Chateau Tongariro, a rail-cart experience along the Forgotten Highway and the celebration of Anzac Day at Waiouru Army Camp.
Travel by the popular ‘Northern Explorer’ train to National Park and enjoy three nights at the Chateau.
A day excursion to the Forgotten Highway includes a 10 tunnel rail cart journey along the decommissioned railway lines on specially-designed rail-carts. On ANZAC day we travel to the Waiouru Army Camp for a special ANZAC day service and entry to the National Army Museum before returning to the Chateau with time to relax before a three course Diggers’ Dinner. Enjoy a relaxing Sunday morning before joining the train home.
Begin at the Strand in Auckland City or other regular stations along the main trunk line on the ‘Northern Explorer’ train to National Park and transfer to the Chateau Tongariro Hotel for a three night stay. Afternoon free before a buffet dinner.
After breakfast we coach to Taumarunui to embark on our petrol-driven rail cart journey along the ‘Forgotten Highway’ – camera at the ready! The guided ride through open countryside, native bush, historic tunnels and over bridges will delight. Return to the hotel before dinner.
After breakfast our coach will take us to Waiouru Army Camp for a special morning ANZAC Day Service. Visit the National Army Museum, enjoy other military activities followed by lunch. Later return to the Chateau to relax before a sumptuous three-course ‘Diggers Dinner.’
A morning to relax before transferring to National Park for the return rail journey home, arriving in Auckland early evening.
