The proceeds of the Otago Central Rail Trail Official Passport contributes to the development and enhancement of the Rail Trail experience.
Collect Stamps As You Go
At each station site a red-painted replica of a NZ Railways Department emergency phone box houses a stamp machine for you to stamp your Official Passport with the station name.
The Otago Central Rail Trail is a Recreational Reserve developed by the Department of Conservation in partnership with the Otago Central Rail Trail Trust. On-going enhancements of the Trail greatly depend on grants and other additional funds raised by the Trust.
