Fun for all the Family!
Whangaparaoa Narrow Gauge Railway
The Whangaparaoa Railway is the fruition of Ted Pointon's childhood dream. Ted was keen on trains from an early age, coming from a family of railway employee's, his Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather all worked for New Zealand Railways.
At age 13 Ted built his first 18 inch gauge loco mock up & carriage in his home back garden. He started with Railways as a cleaner in 1953 and by 1962 was a 1st class Engine driver.
The site includes an animal park with donkeys, goats, rabbits, chickens etc, playground, picnic tables and bush walks through 50 year old native bush.
Why not treat your kids and in fact the whole family to a Locomotive adventure that will surely be remembered.
The Whangaparaoa Railway is just 35 minutes north of Central Auckland on the lovely Hibiscus Coast.
From Auckland take the Silverdale exit off the new motorway and follow signs for Whangaparaoa.
At the top of the Silverdale hill get into the right hand lane and at the traffic lights turn right into Whangaparaoa Road.
Continue for 4km along Whangaparaoa Road, past two more sets of traffic lights. You'll find the entrance on the left hand side marked by a fairly large sign displaying our logo.
We look forward to your visit!
