Great walk, in the right time of year you can go see the seals. the walk there and back is about 10k I would say. if you have a 4x4 you can drive. not recommended for small children or pushchairs. don't go in bad weather

I visit the South Coast of Wellington a lot. It's my go to place for trekking and getting into the wilderness. The walk out through Red Rocks Reserve is incredibly scenic and yes the rocks are red too! The weather can be very changeable, so...More
