Nestled in the beautiful Waitakere (pronunciation: Why-tar-ker-ree) Ranges, approximately 30 minutes from Auckland's CBD is the Waitakere Tramline.
Built in the early 1900's for the construction of the Waitakere Dam, this 2-foot gauge tramline is a working piece of history.
During the journey, we pass through two tunnels, over bridges and viaducts, view a fascinating Glowworm display and see cave wetas. All while traveling through beautiful native bush. After Picnic Flats and exiting a second tunnel, the tram rounds a bend and you'll have a magnificent view of the Waitakere Falls with the dam on top. When we stop at the end of the line you have the opportunity to walk up the steps and onto the top of the dam.
We'd love to see you on the Dam Tram!
