Was able to join group for a trip along this coastal trail to the northern end and back. Interesting to see the goats in the mountainsides and the shoreline views. A number of geocaches available for the searchers.

We so enjoyed our tour passing through some delightful bays in route to Eastbourne. From there we proceeded along the spectacular unpaved coastal road to Pencarrow Station, one of the first sheep and cattle stations in the Wellington area. We saw along the way the...More

From Eastbourne to the Pencarrow lighthouse is a long walk but essentially level. The road is gated at Eastbourne. If you wish to have time and energy to walk the wonderful trails around the hills and lakes near the lighthouse then I recommend the excellent...More

We hired bikes from bike shed and cycled out to the 2 lighthouses. Took about 2.5 hours - easier there than back due to the wind! Beautiful views and a great way to spend some time outdoors. Plenty of people run or walk out as...More

We cycle this relatively often. Best on a still day. Gets very busy on weekends. Not good on a folding bike. Very fine for young families, interesting tracks also past the lighthouse around the lake. More or less flat. Best picnic area at ``The Pipes''...More

It's a lovely 7km walk/ride from the carpark to the lower lighthouse on a compact gravel road. A little further around will take you to Fitzroy Bay. Pack a picnic and spend the day on the south coast. Take a water bottle with you, as...More

Whether it be by bike or by foot, the coastal trail around to the Pencarrow lighthouse is a great activity just out of Wellington. Even on an overcast day, it's still a great activity to take in the dramatic hillsides right next to the ocean...More
