Walk 5 – Private View Estate - NEW
Bay of Islands Walking Weekend Saturday 14th October Walk 5
Private View Estates- NEW
This walk is only available during the Bay of Islands Walking Weekend. Encompassing two very different estates, one a future golf course/lifestyle area and the other a working farm.
You will be driven out to the estates to walk 6 km before being driven back. The first half has scenic views over the golf course and Orongo Bay looking across to Waitangi.
Yes there are hills, but the climbs are gentle!
For the second half you need supporting footwear to navigate the paddocks which can have carved hoof marks!
The views here are over to the Opua Marina, the Waikare Inlet and farmland.
Please bring some morning tea to have near the unique barn which is used for special occasions and events.
We will return to Russell by lunchtime so you can enjoy the ambience of the place.

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.
