Daffodils, markets and steam train rides? It must be spring! Celebrate at the annual fun-filled Daffodil Festival.
Catch the steam train from Wellington to Carterton, pick armfuls of daffs at historic Middle Run, and enjoy all the other events in Carterton town centre - from the annual Wai Art sale to craft markets.
The steam-powered 'Daffodil Express' train makes a special return trip from Wellington for the day, and offers short trips from Carterton to Masterton, too.
All proceeds from daffodil picking go to local branches of St John and Plunket.
