Train Timetable – Kawakawa to Taumarere

Trip duration approx 1 hour. Until Long Bridge is re-piled passengers will not be able to picnic at Taumarere as our purpose built BBQ area is fenced off as a work site. Cyclists and walkers can use the bridge as a temporary holiday arrangement until 8th February, when the bridge re-piling will re-commence, and there will be no access to Opua from Taumarere until the re-piling is complete.
