Pleasant track from Rawhiti road trailhead across hils into the Whangamumu Scenic Reserve area. Takes about 1:15h each way. Good picnic destination with hardly anyone around in winter. No cellphone signal. Note: track can be quite difficult in wet weather as trail often crosses clay...More

New Zealand has nine tracks classified by the Department of Conservation as official Great Walks. The Cape Brett Walkway isn’t one of them, but in terms of sheer beauty, it really should be. At just over 16km (10 miles) each way, and with numerous steep...More

Truly spectacular walk, but save yourself by taking a water taxi to Deep Water Cover and then hike in the 3 hours to the Lighthouse Keepers Hut. This is by far the best part of the walk. The walk from Rawhiti takes 8 hours each...More
