October set as rail venture date

by Ann Morgan kaipara lifestyler

A new adventure of self driving converted golf carts along the unused railway line between Dargaville and Tangowahine is planned to be up and running on October 1.

Fellow directors of Port Dargaville Cruises, Sue and Dave Selby and John Hansen have worked closely with KiwiRail to turn the unused tracks into a tourism opportunity. The process has taken two years of developing, negotiating and planning.

“Initially the carts will offer return or one way trips to Tangowahine, with passengers able to return to Dargaville by van if desired. Eventually we want to have the option of travelling back via the Northern Wairoa river on ‘Daisy’, our scow which already operates river cruises,” said Mr Hansen.

They have secured the rights to go through to Waiotira when that section of line becomes available and plan to offer tourist packages, including weekend activities.

“KiwiRail have been extremely positive and supportive. It is a unique opportunity for Dargaville and we believe it will attract more visitors, adding to the activities on offer here. “We are hoping other tour operators and the public will put forward ideas on what else we can do to arrange good package deals.

Similar ventures are running in Rotorua and Taumarunui and they have been very helpful in our planning.

“It will be a great opportunity for Kaipara residents to get to see the area from a different perspective.

“The line takes you to places you don’t realise are there, along the river and over farmland. The views are quite beautiful and in places you can enjoy the thrill of a bungy jump without jumping off a cliff.”

STARLADY was spat on, beaten and verbally abused when she lived in the city. So she moved to the desert and has never been more accepted.
