Bay of Islands Walking Weekend

Walk 19 – Bay of Islands Vintage Railway Bike and Hike

Sat 16th 
Sun 17th

Meeting at the Bowling Club to catch a minibus for the short ride to the car ferry for the 5-minute boat ride from Okiato to Opua. From Opua you walk 8 km along the scenic Pou Herenga Tai Twin Coast Cycle Trail. This walk takes in beautiful marina, mangrove, estuary and river views. You’ll experience the old train tunnel and of course the Taumarere Long Bridge.

At Taumarere Long Bridge there is a small railway station that services the Bay of Islands Vintage Railway Trains. Here you will catch one of the trains for the last 3 km into Kawakawa. The vintage trains travel through the main street, State Highway 1, the only place in NZ where this happens!

There are cafes, a small supermarket, museum, art gallery and plenty of craft and gift shops. The perfect toilet stop in Kawakawa is the World Famous Hundertwasser toilet.

Have lunch in Kawakawa and a wander around before meeting the Twin Coast Cycle Trail Transport collect your bike and enjoy the 11km cycle back to Opua.

The trail is flat and has an even surface – great for walking and cycling.

It is important that you do know how to ride a bike and have ridden a bicycle in the last few years.
