Chateau Tongariro poster

The opening of the North Island main trunk railway in 1908 provided a major boost to New Zealand’s fledgling tourist industry. Among the destinations made accessible was the central North Island’s Tongariro National Park, which became a popular holiday area in the 1920s. As this poster proclaims, the luxurious Château Tongariro, which opened in 1929, was ‘Best reached by rail’ (and motor coach connection).
