You can’t see the Manawatu Gorge like this anymore —
But you can like this —
Steam Incorporated is running its steam-hauled ‘Heartland Flyer’ excursion on Sunday 5 May from Paekakariki to Woodville and return. It’s an opportunity to both relive the golden age of steam and to see the Manawatu Gorge by train, now the only way.
There is a stop in Waikanae.
