Gisborne Steam Park

The main attractions of the Gisborne Steam Park are a working narrow gauge railway that will soon be used to take passengers on a loop of track; and working engines (including the Fowler Steam Road Roller and Ruston Hornsby Portable Steam Engine) that can be seen operating on regular running days. An engineering workshop museum exhibits the machinery, tools and equipment of a 1920s style farmer's engineering workshop.
