a great way to spend a few hours.

This was my second time doing this trip, so obviously must like it. Be prepared to be lashed by long grass and branches as you pass by and wearing sun glasses helps too. Very friendly owner operators who serve some delicious home made baking at the half way break. A great way to see the local scenery.

Pleasant outing

A pleasant couple of hours on a golf cart buggy on railway lines, experiencing the Dargaville countryside. A couple of brief stops along the way where John explained some history and information about the area. A tea stop at Tangowahine with a selection of date, raisin and cheese scones made by Dave (Dinny's Bakery), whilst the carts were turned around. (also portoloos here).
