“Top tramp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

There are a number of different tracks, so get a map from the kiosk by the swimming pool, before you embark on a trek that might leave you panting. Easy tracks and steeper ones give great views.

“Perfectly NZ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

We loved this track. We did the hike up the top for sunset and it was absolutely stunning. Looked exactly like what we pictured when we thought of NZ - hilly, sheeps everywhere and gorgeous views. The hike up wasn't tough but there is an easier route around the bottom that our friends loved. If you plan to go for sunset carry a flashlight because the trails aren't lit.

“Did the base walk and loved it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

We walked around the mountain on the base track just as the sun was setting. Took loads of photos and enjoyed the fantastic scenery. Plenty of people walk, jog or run the track but it is wide enough to handle the volume of users. There are plenty of prime locations where there are seats available to rest, have a picnic, or just enjoy the view. You can get a good workout or take the kids for a stroll. Highly recommend to everyone. Don't let the summit put you off, this is a great alternative!
