Driving Creek Railway

Whether you’re a passionate potter, a keen conservationist or into extreme adventures, the Coromandel Driving Creek Railway is worth a visit. I love watching my kids faces as they explore and question some of the thought provoking work of Barry Brickell, while wondering through the workshop grounds. In 1994 Barry registered 1.6 hectares of native forest with the QE II Trust. The native forest is home to regenerating kauri, rimu and ferns, protected with predator proof fences and can be view from a zipline!

Take a journey to the Eye Full Tower, travelling on New Zealand’s only narrow-gauge mountain railway. The train zig zags up the mountain side. The track was created so that Barry could source clay from the cliff, carting it down to the workshop where the original brick kilns still stand.
