"Great experience; a jewel of a place! The love that has gone into building this tour by one man is not lost on you. Views from the summit tower are spectacular to say the least. Seriously a must do for the traveller."

Driving Creek Railway & Coromandel Zipline Tours

Kia ora! 

Driving Creek Railway is back providing authentic train tours from Friday 29th May and Coromandel Zipline Tours is back providing unforgettable zipline tours from Saturday 30th May.  We’ve had to make a few changes so everyone who journeys with us stays safe. We will be running smaller and more personal tours with restrictions on the number of separate groups we can take to ensure each group can maintain the appropriate physical distance from others, so make sure you get in quick since availability is limited!

You can contact us if you have any questions or you can make a booking here.
