The Hutt Valley is blessed by its train service and its views of water. And the trains also take bikes. Enjoy the landscape and the river – take the train!
Our whole day of openings may be relished by walking or biking to train stations that are never more than 10-15min walk away.
It’s also affordable: a Dayrover is $14.
