Do you believe in time travel?

Ever wish that you could go back to the good old days?

My name is John Smale and this is my lovely Marie.  I am 85 years old, and before we go, our dream is to create a 1920's historic experience for all Kiwis to enjoy a journey back in time to a bush railway, old saw mill, cookhouse and more with staff in period costume. This legacy will last beyond our lifetimes, providing families, couples, corporates and enthusiasts with a place to connect, celebrate, camp and recharge by stepping back in time to the good old days. 

We love our community

I first set up the Toot n Whistle train ride at Kuirau Park in Rotorua back in 1960.  I also helped establish the Casablanca Theatre and have been an active member of Lions in Rotorua for many years.

 

We have a big new dream and team of experienced locals

Our new dream is a big one that will outlast my lifetime, and we have a team of experienced locals to keep things moving forward.  View more about our dream and team on our website at www.historicexperience.co.nz We welcome you to join with us.

 

We need your help please

We have the land already allocated. Right now, we need your help to raise $20,000 to fund ecological studies, site engineering drafting and applications for resource consents. Join us on this journey that will fulfill the dream of two old timers and create a fun and refreshing historic experience for future generations!
