A short walk in Kaitoke Regional Park
During the Wellington movies tour a few months ago we had a longish stop in the Kaitoke Regional Park. After lunch and a visit to Rivendell our guide encouraged us to take the long way back to the carpark.
I think this was so that he could have a sleep in the van. Luckily for him we all thought it was a good idea and off we went.
About 40ish or so minutes long, we followed a loop route along some paved paths and some soft tracks through beautiful native bush. It was a really enjoyable serene experience and now that I know it’s there, I doubt it will be the last time I visit.
I finished the walk with one lingering question: why must there always be someone who bounces the swing bridge?
I bet it was a male…
I can’t be certain… But I’m sure it must’ve been.
And peaceful – very therapeutic.
Was wirth the cost of the trip to find this hidden gem!!! Hard to believe it is so close to the Capital
That was probably my main takeaway from the day truth be told. Will try and get back there soon – also want to do the Rimutaka trig walk which is in the neighbourhood.
okay so here is where I ‘fess up – I bounce on the swing bridge. I don’t know why, it must just be some innate annoying part of me that must be a pest….
You must have a better head for heights than I do!
Haha! There is always one that jumps on the bridge! I am not one of those! I really should get to NZ one day…it looks wonderful!
Yes you should. It’s a pretty good place 🙂
What a Paradise! I love Your photos.
It is really isn’t it! Thank you, you’re very kind.
