Walk 6 - Omata Estate Vineyard from Russell 10km

Friday 11th - Evening – wine tasting and delicious wood fired homemade pizza!

Saturday 12th - Afternoon - wine tasting and sumptuous platters

Omata Estate is a boutique vineyard situated in a stunning location on a sheltered hilltop with wonderful views across the vines to the bay. Their lovely wooden restaurant, brick paths, terraced and sunny garden are reminiscent of an old French vineyard, which creates a perfect atmosphere to sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of wine with a gourmet platter or delicious wood fired pizza.

It is a lovely 10km walk - through Russell township, across mangrove boardwalks, through native bush and has coastal views.

Includes wine tasting and beautiful food, and each wine tasting goes through 5 different varietals of wine all grown on the property.

Catching a mini bus back to HQ at the end of it all.

It’s a hard choice!!

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.
