Discover the scenery & history of the Forgotten World in a truly unique ‘soft adventure’ experience. Hidden within the Forgotten World for close to a century, 140 kilometres of abandoned railway weaves through the historic and rugged King Country landscape between Okahukura (near Taumarunui) through to Whangamomona and on to Stratford. Travelling over 98 bridges and through 24 hand-dug tunnels, explore with us the remnants of the towns and settlements that grew and faded as the land was broken in and settled. Whether it is on the railway by RailCart or along the Whanganui River by JetBoat, we offer a variety of tours to suit your time frame and desire to explore. Our 5 Tunnel tour operates year round. It's highlight is the 1.5 km tunnel and the beautiful brick lined tunnels, all hand dug nearly a century ago. Our longer tours include the one day 20 Tunnel Tour, and the two-day tours, The Ultimate and the Expedition. Come join us in the Forgotten World!
Join us on a 20 Tunnel Tour and we will give you 10% off if you book by the end of October. Just stop by our stand and ask for the Promo Code and the discount is yours! We look forward to seeing you in the Forgotten World this summer

With the addition of a new 15 seater jet boat to the Forgotten World Adventures shed we can now offer a fantastic fun day on the Whanganui River and you will never have to lift a paddle. Enjoy the thrill of skimming through bubbling rapids and the awe of the deep ravines and waterfalls. On reaching the Mangaparua Landing, disembark and enjoy a half hour easy walk through stunning native bush to the Bridge to Nowhere. Hear the stories of the early settlers who had dreams for this land and how the land won eventually. Morning and afternoon tea and lunch are included in your day.
