Banks Peninsula Walking Festival 2022 now launched!

This year’s programme (downloadable copy here) will be as popular as ever with a wonderful variety of walks to enjoy on Banks Peninsula. Included are some of the fantastic walks that were canceled last year due to weather, as well as some exciting new offerings.  This includes a family friendly walk to Packhorse Hut guided by 8-year-old Miss Emilie and her mum Victoria Ann Bruce who walked Te Araroa together,  a rare opportunity to hike to Omahu Reserve from the Otahuna Valley, a chance to learn about the incredible work being done to restore Ahuriri Wetland and a four paws adventure at Panama Rock Reserve!  The great variety of walks offers something for people of all ages, abilities and interests. Whether it be history and heritage, botany or geology there is something for everyone with a guarantee of beautiful views and scenery along the way.

Thanks so much to the ‘Wonderful Wanda’ – our new Walking Festival coordinator for the great job she has done pulling together the programme.
