Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

The Puff and Pull Carnival is a totally unique event that is conducted by the Bay of Islands Vintage Railway, Rotary Club of Bay Of Islands in conjunction with Sport Northland, Kawakawa Business Association, and local schools and organisations.

The day commences with a sponsored walk - Trek the Track - for about 600 school children. This is followed by the feature event of the day, in which teams of children and adults compete for 2 trophies to pull the vintage steam engine Gabriel the length of the main street. It is a wildly exciting event and totally unique in the world.

Following the Pull events, the crowd moves through the town to the adjacent Johnson Park where a range of stalls and entertainment is highlighted by performances of music and dance by local schools.
This is a day for the whole family to enjoy, and to support the Bay Of Islands Vintage Railway in the process. Teams entering to pull the train pay a nominal entry fee with proceeds going to the railway.
