Lyttelton Head to Head Walkway

The Head to Head walkway is an ambitious project being driven by the Banks Peninsula Community Board. When complete the walkway will link Godley Head to Adderley Head via a continuous coastal walkway.  The Trust participates in the Community Board Working Party.

Strong submissions from the community, including the Trust, saw funding for this reinstated in the Council’s Annual Plan for 2014-15 and progress has been made to improve existing track sections from Lyttelton to Pony Point and around Governors Bay. New signage featuring a Head to Head logo has been installed and a map of the route has been produced. A signage plan has been made for the Church Bay to Purau section of the walk and improvements are planned for the existing Cliff track.

The Trust is supporting the efforts of the Governors Bay Jetty Restoration Group to fundraise for a rebuild of the iconic Governors Bay Jetty as this will be an important resting point on the Head to Head walkway once it is completed.

February 2019 – We are currently working with Living Springs to jointly investigate the potential for routing a section of the walkway across the lower part of their property, making the connection between Allandale and Teddington possible. A day was spent with Living Springs manager Denis Aldridge, along with Whaka-Ora/Healthy Harbour manager Karen Banwell to check out a potential scenic route, which will complete the section of the walkway from Allandale and Teddington Flat.
