Tickets for rides are usually obtained from the stationmaster who manages arrivals and departures from the station. Tickets are $2 per ride, or $15 for 12 rides.

You can also buy postcards, badges and the Keirunga Park DVD at the station.

Opening hours

The railway is open to the public on the first and third Sunday of each month (weather permitting) and rides are available between the hours of 11.00 am and 4.00 pm.

The Keirunga Park Railway is also open to the public during the same hours over the four days of Easter and Labour Weekends, when the club is joined by visiting locomotives and their drivers from other clubs around New Zealand. This is a great opportunity to see many different steam, diesel and electric locos on display.
