Fodor's Expert Review Goldfields Railway

Waihi to Paeroa Transportation Site (Airport, Bus, Ferry, Train)
This half-hour, 7-km (4.3-mile) heritage-train journey into the Karangahake Gorge follows part of the former Waihi to Paeroa line, built in 1905 after five years of challenging construction in the steep gorge country. The train travels from historic Waihi Railway Station to the Waikino Station Café, which, luckily, has great homemade food. Travel one way or return, or bring your bike–-from Waikino to Paeroa the former railway line now forms part of the Hauraki Rail Trail for bikers and walkers. Reservations for the train are recommended.
