Miniature railways

Ride on two different miniature railways and stick around for the playgrounds too

Avalon Park Lion's Miniature Railway

Around the park, through a tunnel, over level crossings and next to Wellington's largest adventure playground.

$2 to ride with all proceeds going back to the Lions Club of Lower Hutt who manage and run the trains.

The train operates from 1pm to 4pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, depending on weather. It is also run most week days in the school holidays.

Petone Beach Railway

With a great bunch of enthusiasts behind it, and mix of electric, diesel and steam locomotives (and even a traction engine) there'll be something to fascinate Dad and Grandad too. Run and maintained by the Hutt Valley Model Engineering Society Inc.

Rides are only $2 and the train operates from from 1pm to 4pm on fine Sundays.
