More about the event

Labour Weekend is always one of our most enjoyable events for everyone!

Our open weekends bring together people and their locomotives from all over the country to spend a few days riding the rails at our popular park.


There's always a good selection of locomotives to ride and a selection of food vendors.


Bring the family and set yourselves up for a picnic on the hill, all the while watching the trains dance around you.

Pop down to our steaming bays and see the drivers preparing their locomotives and find out some of the history of them and the track.


Public Running is from 11am till 4pm each day over the 4 days from Friday the 20th of October (Hawkes Bay Anniversary) until Monday the 23rd of October (Labour Day).

Rides are $2 each

or $20 for a 12 ride ticket
