Forgotten World Adventures provides self-driven  rail tours along  the now decommissioned railway line  in specially modified rail carts. Departing from Stratford or Taumarunui, enjoy a one or two-day tour exploring the deep hidden valleys of New Zealand's Forgotten World. The tours depart during the summer months of October through to April and truly are the best way to explore the Forgotten World.

Taumarunui - Vehicles may be left at the Forgotten World Adventures (FWA) depot car park free of charge.  Vehicles may be locked into a secure section overnight at a cost of $10 per night

Stratford - Vehicles may be left at the Eastern Taranaki Experience (ETE) depot. A shuttle will then transport you from there to the start of your tour. For those experiencing The Ultimate, this is included within the cost of your tour. For those experiencing the Republic Rail Picnic and prefer to leave vehicles in Stratford and take a shuttle to Douglas, then a fee of $15 per head is payable to the shuttle driver. There is off road parking at Douglas close to the line where The Republic Picnic tour departs at no charge.
