Driving Creek Railway is a railway and a pottery, witha good café nearby.
Driving Creek Railway is a Coromandel gem, conceived and mainly built by volunteers and reclusive potter, Barry Brickell, who died in 2016.
A narrow-gauge railway that climbs into the bush to the Eyeful Tower. There are tunnels lined with bottles and the railway itself is a real feat of engineering. After the rail trip you can check out the local art and pottery for sale in the shop. $35 each for a great day out. www.drivingcreekrailway.co.nz.
