Overview

Departing at 7:15AM, the 20 Tunnel Tour Whangamomona to Taumarunui in New Zealand sets off from Taumarunui where our shuttle bus takes you by road to Whangamomona. On arrival at the Whangamomona village, go for a quick look around before stopping by at the Whangamomona Station for a safety briefing. Then off you go along the rails to complete your tour at Okahukura where you join the shuttle bus for the short 10-minute ride back to our Taumarunui base.

On this tour, you may choose to:

  • Spend the night at the Whangamomona Hotel before the tour and arrange for your vehicle to be transferred to Taumarunui awaiting your return back to our depot.
  • Leave Taranaki on the morning of your tour for a drive up to Whangamomona Station where you meet the tour at 9.30AM. Factor in some sightseeing time if you wish to look around the Whangamomona village. Then spend the night in Taumarunui after your tour, taking a pre-booked non-standard shuttle back to Whangamomona the morning after. The shuttle leaves for Whangamomona at 7.30AM.
  • Leave Taranaki on the morning of your tour for a drive up to Whangamomona Station where you meet the tour at 9.30AM. Then join our ‘Same Day’ shuttle free of charge for a return trip to Whangamomona arriving at around 7PM.

What to bring:

  • In this region the weather is changeable and it’s best to prepare for all conditions no matter the season  
  • Clothing that can be layered, including warm thermal/merino clothing with a good wind/rain jacket or shell is ideal.  The RailCarts have plastic side-curtains that provide good rain protection.
  • It can be very cool in the tunnels even in summer.

We suggest you have the following:

  • Sunglasses
  • Camera
  • Binoculars
  • Water and extra snacks if required - we provide lunch and morning and afternoon tea snacks
  • Windproof jacket with hood even in fine weather
  • Hat, scarf and gloves
  • Sturdy footwear with warm socks
  • Pack a rainproof coat and over-trousers if rain is predicted.
  • Any personal medication as required - especially allergy medications.  This is a rural environment with insects and pollens.
  • Sometimes there are local artisans offering a variety of local produce for sale at some of our stops.  You may like to bring along a little cash in case something appeals.
