Bookings 

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.

When we are operating at Covid Level 2, extra precautions will be in place for your safety. All of our crew will be fully vaccinated and face coverings will be required (unless you are exempt) at the Railway Station and on board the train. Social distancing will be maintained where practicable and everybody will be required to scan or sign-in before entering a carriage.

If you have a ticket but feel ill on the day of your excursion, please do not come on board. GCVR will change your ticket for another date.
