Easter Trains

All aboard the Easter Trains, and join us for an unforgettable family adventure!

Bookings Required

Join us for an Easter Hunt like no other…

Celebrate Easter in a magical way in the company of the Easter Bunny on the Weka Pass Railway. Grab the kids and enjoy a fun-filled day in the country

The fun begins the moment you set foot on the Glenmark Platform. The Easter Bunny has hidden many of his eggs around the railway, and he needs your help to find them! Can you help locate them? If you can crack it, you’ll be given a special prize…

Your heritage train ride will take you through some spectacular limestone country. Sit back and relax in our restored 1930’s carriages whilst nibbling on chocolate, or soak in the sun on the open air viewing decks. Keep your eyes peeled for the bunny’s hidden treasure!

Your ride will end in the village of Waikari. Here you can enjoy a picnic lunch or a bite to eat at the Tearooms or café.

Other attractions include a ‘Guess the Number of Easter Eggs in the Jar’ activity, and a photographic stop where you can watch your train at work – don’t forget the camera so you can photograph it for posterity. Our Easter Trains are sure to be an unforgettable adventure for the whole family to enjoy.
