Maitai Valley walk

A great country walk with a variety of terrain and native New Zealand plants and some unusal exotics

Take a walk through the beautiful Maitai Valley situated 20mins South West of Nelson City.


You start your 1 hour loop walk at the Maitai 'pipeline bridge'. This bridge is the start of the "Tantragee Walkway" as well. Cross the bridge and follow the track straight ahead and up the hill, which will take you through 13 hectares of beautiful plantation that has been developed over the last 20years.

You will need to bring some sturdy foot wear as this track takes you aross several fords which can make it difficult to cross after heavy rain.

In the summer there is a lovely swimming hole towards the end of the track near the Maitai Vally Motor Camp. So dont forget to pack your swimming cozzy!
