Weka Pass Railway, Waipara

For steam train enthusiasts out there – this is the trip for you! Even if you aren’t into trains it’s still a great day out! The train leaves from Waipara, a small town about an hour north of Christchurch. Waipara is also home to a few excellent vineyards that we had chance to see from the train. It’s autumn now, which saw the vineyards turn yellow, orange and green – very picturesque! The train ride was about 45 minutes and at the other end we had a picnic for half an hour before heading back.
