A very small reserve which is more suitable for picnics rather than bush walks. The walks are short, but are not very well signposted or have estimated walk times. The waterfall is worth walking to (approx 10 min). Although it is a very steep climb...More

It’s one of those reserves that the locals don’t go to because of the thieves. If you go by car, tourists, take your passports with you. Take your GPS off the windscreens. Do not leave anything worth $$$ in the car. I’m not kidding. My...More

This is a lovely short walk to do if you are strapped for time but would like to do a short walk in Wellington's Lower Hutt. The walk to the waterfall is really beautiful.

A beautiful reserve. Ideal for families and picnics. Duck pond but no feeding them. Did a walk up to the waterfall, stunning, peaceful and relaxing. Put our feet in the water where the waterfall is. Cold but grounding. Had tingling, toasty warm feet afterwards. Different...More

A picturesque walk within easy access from Wellington or the Hutt Valley. Adequate parking available and shirt walks are family oriented.

A beautiful area to walk and take in the native flora & fauna. Provides a good perspective of the local bush, coupled with the history of the previous use of the area. Take a walk at least to the waterfall.

When I came here for the first time, I wondered why I had never come before! On a nice day, it's great to come here for walks or a picnic. There's a weta cave (for the brave!), a waterfall walk, lake with swans and ducks,...More
