How to help the Bay of Islands Vintage Railway

The Bay Of Islands Vintage Railway (BOIVR) is always happy to welcome new Supporters, Helpers and Volunteers.

All of these help to maintain the historic engines and rolling stock, track, buildings, and, importantly, our vintage engines. Together these have become significant in raising the profile of Kawakawa and Northland in New Zealand and worldwide.
Here are the main ways that this can be done:

• Offering practical help as a Volunteer

• Giving ongoing financial support by coming for a train ride or becoming a member of our Friends of BOIVRT Club (new membership details coming soon).

• By making a donation
Donations can be made placed in any of our various donation boxes, or through the ticket office of Guard on Duty. Thank you for your support. Alternatively, to make an online donation please email:
