“Enjoy panoramic views from various points on this track, as well as from a lookout point at the top (290 m).”
Te Kuri Farm Walkway is a surprisingly challenging farmland walk with multiple ups and downs. It’s a sneaky track that tricks you into thinking you have conquered the last of the steep climbs but then springs another one on you. However, the awesome panorama of Poverty Bay from a lookout point at Town Hill, 290m, makes the considerable effort all worthwhile. On a clear day, hikers can see as far south as Mahia Peninsula and as far west as Maungapohatu on the eastern fringes of Te Urewera National Park.
Remnants of native bush along the way provide a home for tui, kereru (native wood pigeon), ruru (owl), riroriro (grey warbler ) and piwakawaka (fantail).
A 2-3 hour, 5.6km loop track that can be walked in either direction, the walkway is on a private farm and is closed each year for the lambing season from 1 August until late October.
NB. No dogs, horses or mountain bikes allowed. Leave gates as you find them.
