Ninth year for Wark­worth Walks

Walking New Zealand - - New Zealand Walks -

the op­por­tu­nity to take in lo­cal food and bev­er­age. They re­ceived rave re­views last year and will al­most cer­tainly be pop­u­lar again this year.

Re­turn­ing af­ter a two-year hia­tus is the Cape Rodney to Sawmill Cafe trail, a good choice for any­one who loves stun­ning coast­line, farm­land, a pretty har­bour, and pizza and beer. Sand­spit to Brick Bay of­fers vis­it­ing rights to sculp­tures off the pub­lic trail, plus lunch at the fa­mous glasshouse at Brick Bay Sculp­ture Trail.

The Kawau Bay views are out­stand­ing, as is this stretch of Mahu­rangi coast­line.

You will also find sell-out favourites from pre­vi­ous years: Mahu­rangi Mas­ter­piece, which hikes across pri­vate farm­land to Big Bay; the Vine­yard Trail which vis­its three lo­cal vine­yards and a cidery; and Glo­ri­ous Glorit fea­tur­ing the peace and plenty of the Kaipara Har­bour edge.

Th­ese offer an amaz­ing mix of terrain, cater­ing, level of ex­er­tion and en­ter­tain­ment, while show­cas­ing the special char­ac­ter of our lo­cal area.

So, make a long week­end of it and take in a se­lec­tion of the great walks on offer. Check the web­site and plan your week­end. Re­mem­ber to book early to avoid dis­ap­point­ment. We look for­ward to see­ing you for Wark­worth Walks 2017 (www.wark­worth­walks.co.nz).
