All Aboard - Te Tairāwhiti Arts Festival
Listen to the rich stories of place and gather perspective as you experience the view from the comfort of the WA165 steam train.
All aboard the WA165 as this heritage steam train heads to Muriwai and back.
With lunch provided at Muriwai and a few surprise performances, enjoy the only remaining WA class train in operation.
The WA 165 spent most of its working life between Gisborne and Motuhora. Now semi-retired, the WA 165 steams to life for a special Festival experience.
