The views from Flagstaff Hill are worth the walk uphill. And if you are as lucky as we was, you might also see a Kiwi in the small forrest on the way.

Great walk but steep with lots of steps. You can drive up here if you prefer, however the walk is a good workout if you are fit. The view is lovely and the homes quaint and well maintained. Kiwis are found wandering around the top which was a highlight for me. The view of Russell and Bay of Islands is spectacular. There is also a mosaic picture/map of the entire bay which is great to get your bearings or in my case to see where I had sailed over previous week.

We walked here from the waterfront and then back along the bush walk. It was very interesting to find that this was the actual site of the flag pole which kept beimg cut down, rather than the much more impressive flagpole at Waitangi! It was a pleasant walk and we even got to see some native trout in the stream that followed the bush walk down to the bay along with a friendly Weka

Easy access, wide ranging views, interesting history. You can walk from Russell town centre and avoid the tour costs. Take a picnic - though I don't think there are any facilities (toilet etc) there.
