The current issue of New Zealand’s number one travel magazine, Let’s Travel, features my piece on New Zealand’s Forgotten World Railway. Visit LetsTravelMag.com for subscription details (including very well priced digital rates) to read the article. In short, imagine a combination of lush rainforest, remote and enormous farms, abandoned settlements and dozens of tunnels and bridges. In less than five years the Forgotten World Railway has become one of the most popular new tourist attractions in the central North Island.
In the article you’ll also find out how the golf-buggies that ride this once disused railway were converted and just how much ingenuity and entrepreneurship was involved in creating the business.
Tours begin in Taumaranui and in the eccentric little settlement of Whangamomona – a Wild West-looking historic town that thinks it’s a republic. Find out why in the article! In the meantime, enjoy my top 50 photos from the trip.
