Tickets can be purchased from the i-Site Gisborne Information Centre in Grey Street.

Please note that half an hour before the designated departure any remaining tickets are sold at the Gisborne Railway Station ticket office where we have EFTPOS, which also is available on the Train.

(At this stage no online booking is available - sorry)

There is plenty of free parking available at the Gisborne Railway Station, which is accessed from Grey Street

Please note that excursions are only to Muriwai as the track to Beach Loop is still unuseable due to damage.
