Nice work that takes about 3-4 hours to walk to Totara Flats hutt from the carpark. The first part of the track (1.5 hours) is pretty up and down and somewhat boggy in parts (hate to see this in winter). When you meet the river and walk along the flats it is a great walk. The hutt was basically booked... More

After driving 10 ks on a gravel road, you'd expect to find peace and seclusion - but no!! Arrived to find about 50 other cars parked there - and people everywhere, including several with dogs not on leads, despite the many signs saying this was necessary. The bridge is worth a walk over, but unless you are set for a... More

So what the road is out! Just park at the end and take a walk. In about 15 minutes you come to the suspension bridge. It's fun and stunningly beautiful. Lovely walk. It's gravel so wear appropriate shoes. Take a picnic.

Waiohine Gorge is a popular camping and picnicking spot near Carterton in the Wairarapa. We had hoped to camp here to enjoy the bush walks and swimming in the river, but some time ago there was a major slip and washout about 800 metres from the road end and no-one is sure when or if this part of the road...

Please be advised that since the slip has stopped visitors being able to drive to the original car park, the upkeep of the public facilities has ceased, leaving toilet facilities that require immense gag-reflex control when encountering the smell and the flies. I doubt there will be many campers at the original car camp site, as it is not possible... More
