Gisborne City Vintage Railway Excursions

Gisborne's own vintage Wa165 is the only remaining Wa class train. Now retired our WA165 comes out for special steam trips and excursions for you and your families out in the sun. What makes our steam trips so special is the travel across the airport (the only one in the southern hemisphere). 

All Excursions depart from Gisborne Railway Station at 1pm. The excursion will take you on a return loop to Muriwai, with the option to be dropped off at Wrights Winery to sample some of their decadent Gisborne wine over a light lunch and collected on the return trip. Excursion lasts approximately 2 hours.

For a list of all excursion dates please visit their website
