Banks Peninsula Walking Festival

Get off the beaten track, explore parts of Banks Peninsula not usually open to the public, visit new reserves and appreciate projects in progress. Local guides will lead, inform and inspire you along the way!

Dates: Saturdays and Sundays from 3rd to 25th November 2018.
Cost: Starting from $10. Price depends on the walk.

  • experiencing recent fire recovery efforts first hand on the Phoenix walk at the Port Hills Ohinetahi Reserve where a massive planting program is well underway
  • heading to Hinewai to appreciate nature’s spectacular work since a massive 2011 fire in the reserve.
  • encouraging teenagers to get out into nature on one of the self-guided overnight walks to the Packhorse Hut, Rod Donald Hut or Hinewai Lodge.
  • experiencing an exciting new track such as Carew’s Peak and Panama Reserve, or a secret walk in Ellangowan.
  • visiting little known Misty Peaks and Te Oka Reserves soon to be further developed.
  • taking a rare opportunity to visit all the private covenants at French Farm.
