The Nile River Rainforest Train is a fantastic way to experience the inspiring landscapes of the Paparoa National Park.

Completed in December 2002, ‘The Nile River Rainforest Train’ recreated a bygone era where bush trams once prevailed. The Train provides visitors with a fantastic way to experience the spectacular wilderness landscapes of the Nile River Canyon in the South Island’s Paparoa National Park.

Depart from the ‘Festival Site’ station at the entry to the water sculptured limestone Nile River Canyon. Enjoy the ‘Untamed Natural Wilderness’ landscape and  enjoy the interpretation as the train meanders its way through the Rainforest beside the Nile River. Pass through many of the film sites for the BBC production “The Lost World” and imagine the pioneers at work in the canyon. Arrive at “Softrock Station”, nestled beneath the towering limestone bluffs. Take a short walk from the station through the rainforest to the Nile River Suspension Bridge before your return to the festival station.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?
Underworld Adventures began in 1989 as four locals, armed with plenty of passion, a van, and a few wetsuits, wanted to share their inspirational caving exploration experiences with novices. In its first year, underworld adventures hosted all of 5 visitors. Pre-covid, with a full team of managers, office staff, guides & maintenance staff, underworld adventures regularly showcased their experiences to around 10,000 people a year. Chuffed is proud as punch to be able to offer their incredible experiences in our gifts, and are stoked to be able to support Underworld Adventures as they recover from covid & continue to march forward into the future!
