Nestled within the deep hidden valleys of New Zealand’s Forgotten World Highway is the ultimate way to explore rural New Zealand. Travel along decommissioned railway lines, through tunnels, over bridges and rivers and to townships that time forgot. Experience the Forgotten World from the comfort of a rail-cart, cleverly adapted to be self-driven along the tracks of the Forgotten World railway. There are plenty of photo opportunities along the way while taking in ever-changing vistas with our semi guided NZ rail tours.
We are located 15kms out side of Taumarunui New Zealand on the historical “Forgotten World Highway”. We are a family owned and operated business.

Nevalea Alpacas, the largest alpaca farm in New Zealand, is home to over 750 friendly alpacas. We offer visitors ‘The Ultimate Alpaca Experience’ and have a range of different activities to choose from to give visitors an opportunity to get up close to the alpacas, hand feed them and feel just how soft and cuddly the alpacas are.
We operate alpaca treks through the summer months, where visitors can walk an alpaca around the farm and see hundreds of alpaca come to greet them in the hills, spectacular views surrounded by alpacas. We also offer a shorter alpaca walk throughout the year as another option.
We have new-born baby alpacas all year-round, and for a unique opportunity offer visitors the chance to have a cuddle with a baby alpaca. Great up close and personal experiences and chances for some amazing photos.
Visit the farm shop, we have a large range of designer knitwear that is 100% New Zealand grown and made.
