We visited Kawakawa with the sole purpose of taking the kids (3&6) on the steam train through town. On the day we went it wasnt running, so instead we took our journey on the diesel (they operate on alternate days), which was fine. We had a guide giving us facts and jokes along the way, which became slightly repeatative. Journey down the main road was realitively short before heading into the countryside and to the railway bridge (under renovation) and old station (which contains posters with info about its history). For the cost (around $50 for 3 of us and 3 year old free) I wouldn't recommend making the stop - but if you have a little Thomas the Tank Engine enthusiast it might be worth a look.
