Walking Festival 2020 Highlights!

It was another sucessful Festival with most of the walks running to capacity and fine weather for the majority of the days.

We are always so grateful to the many people that make the event possible – the guides, tail end Charlies, land owners, organisations, the committee and of course it wouldn’t happen without the support of the many participants!

An amazing view of Scenery Nook for ‘Lands End Long Day’ walkers.
Taking a break on the Sallys Bay walk, where the covenanted bush is so thick the group actually walked around and not through it.
The Nikau Palm Gully walk provided some spectacular scenery overlooking the Akaroa Marine Reserve.
Heading over the hill to Oashore from Birdlings Flat.
Little Port Cooper provides a completely different view of Lyttelton Harbour.
Peter Squires led walkers from Takamatua to Browntop Saddle, high above Akaroa.
Tane’s Botanical Wonderland ended with an event to unveil a special plaque acknowledging the gifting and sucessful establishment of a rare Wollemi Pine Tree in the garden.
Omahu Bush is a great place for families to enjoy.
