Local Activities

Weka Pass Railway

This is a historic rural railway using both vintage steam and diesel-electric locomotives on 12.8 km of scenic line through the unique limestone beauty of the Weka Pass out of Waipara where superior weather patterns provide crystal clear air and high sunshine hours. The Weka Pass Railway is a totally voluntary organisation, whose members are dedicated to the preservation of New Zealand's rail heritage. Initially the railway runs across flat farm land and passes a large irrigation reservoir and vineyards, before climbing grades as steep as l:50 ( 2% ) as it winds through the cuttings in the Pass.

Your camp was lovely and peaceful!

“Just to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your camp for 7 nights. Your camp was lovely and peaceful and the facility’s were always clean, the showers always lovely and hot. Really lovely to see that you allowed dogs in the camp. We don’t have a dog unfortunately ,but really nice to see other peoples dogs being included in their holiday. All the dogs were very well behaved and a lovely treat to have them around in the camp. Also we really enjoyed the new years eve entertainment. We were really impressed with the band you had playing on New Years day, They were wonderful and a great selection of songs. I will highly recommend your camp to all my friends. Thanks so much for a lovely holiday.” January 2014
