A unique way to travel

Known elsewhere in the world as drasine, rail cars or speeders, Forgotten World Adventures rail carts began life on the pristine golf courses of Georgia, USA.
Petrol driven and seating two, four or six people, they are fitted with seatbelts for safety. Designed to reduce rail noise and be very easy to operate, the rail carts have been certified to standard by consulting engineers. The carts have proved to be comfortable, safe and reliable.


Explore The Whanganui River

Our beautiful green jet boat Ongaruhe, has ‘over the bow through windscreen’ boarding, a central aisle which means no clambering over seats, and generous tiered seating enabling all passengers to enjoy the views. She carries up to 15 passengers in comfort, and an intercom lets you easily hear the stories and history of the river from your driver.


The Forgotten World Gateway

Come stay in our region and enjoy all the Forgotten World has to offer. Our motel offers supremely clean comfortable units from studio to two-bedroom apartments. Stay awhile and either before or after your Forgotten World Adventure, we can help you to walk the Tongariro Crossing, cycle the Timber Trail or the Forgotten World Highway, enjoy a game of golf or fish the local rivers. Just a few of the activities to do around us.
