Walk 18 – PhatHouse Brewery and River Walk - NEW

Enjoy a ferry ride from Russell to Paihia, before you start your walk along the waterfront in Paihia to Waitangi and the start of the Haruru Falls track, which is a sheltered track full of bird-watching, local history and stunning views. Walking to the horseshoe shaped Haruru Falls, which means to roar or big noise in Te Reo Māori.

Arriving at PhatHouse Brewery at 2pm for a 1 hour tour that includes a behind the scenes tour of the brewery, a brief history of PhatHouse Brewing Co. and how our present building became the brewery & Bar it is today. They also give insights as to what is involved in the brewing process and there is the opportunity to smell the hops, taste the grains and taste the beer directly from the tank! A tasting paddle is also included with the tour. Well worth it with this entertaining and passionate crew of brewers.

Following the tour enjoy a wood fired pizza in the lovely surrounds.

1. Please check what is included and the time and length of your walk so you know what you need to bring in terms of food and water. It’s always a good idea to have a card or cash on you as you never know what you might encounter along the way.

2. The Russell Bowling Club is our Walking Weekend HQ, all walks start from there.

Our guides are all passionate and knowledgeable about the Bay of Islands area and bring something special to the walking experience. Each walk has no more than 20 people. Our HQ is the Russell Bowling Club where people can meet, chat about their day and have something to eat and drink.

Russell is a fantastic base for the weekend with lots of great restaurants, places to stay and for the non-walkers out there. We are very excited about this weekend and the great walking experiences there are here in the Bay of Islands. Time to get your walking boots out of the cupboard and join us in the Bay of Islands.
