Masterton day-trip from Wellington by train

The huge playground at Queen Elizabeth Park

Need a break from the city? Masterton has excellent cafes, world-class art and one of the best public parks in the country, with loads of activities in easy walking distance. Make a day of it and bring your bikes! 

Take the train from Wellington all the way to Masterton at the end of the line (Sunday services are via bus while KiwiRail does infrastructure improvements and essential track maintenance). It’s a 10 minute walk from the station straight down Perry Street to the town centre. Check out a Wellington to Masterton train timetable or see the special Christmas and New Year timetable until Sunday 9 January 2022 here.
