Guided Walks in Tawatawa Reserve

  • Tawatawa reserve Murchison Street Wellington, Wellington, 6023 New Zealand (map)

Tawatawa Reserve is one of Wellington's hidden jewels. Well-known to dog-owners as a place to let their dogs run freely, this reserve offers much more than just a place to walk a dog.

It offers spectacular views from the ridges and a wide range of tracks provide walks of various lengths and degrees of difficulty. It also contains some of the oldest ngaio trees in Wellington and a large number of whārangi, an attractive tree that is regionally uncommon.

This guided 75-minute walk involves a gentle uphill stroll for the first 10 minutes and is otherwise level or downhill. Normal footwear will suffice for this walk, which requires no more than average fitness and is suitable for children. However, the track surface is not suitable for wheelchairs.

Walks will take place at 2.15pm and 3.45pm.

The walks will run unless there is moderate to heavy rain. (Please note that in the event of cancellation, there is no alternative date for the guided walks.) Contact Ken on 021 054 3456 if you have any questions about the walk.

This event is being organised as part of Parks Week 2016. Parks Week is an annual celebration of the important role that our parks play in contributing to the health of our communities. A range of formal and informal events take place across Wellington and New Zealand during parks week - there is something for everyone! Parks Week is a highlight of Summer City.
