Wellington is surrounded by picturesque walking and hiking tracks, both inland and coastal.
Wellington's fascinating mix of city, rolling hills and beautiful coastline makes this region fascinating to explore on foot.
The 40-minute Red Rocks walk goes from Owhiro Bay to the Red Rocks on the rugged South coast of Wellington. The rocks themselves were formed 200 million years ago from undersea volcanic eruptions - iron oxide gives the rocks their interesting colouring. Choose to continue on to Sinclair Head where there is a fur seal colony.
Explore the heart of Wellington on the six-hour City-to-Sea walk. Beginning near parliament, the heart of central Wellington, and ending at the South Coast at Island Bay, this walk takes in Victoria University, Goverment House and the beautiful suburb of Island Bay.
The fascinating island of Matiu/Somes, clearly visible in Wellington Harbour, is steeped in fascinating history. Take the 40-minute track that circumnavigates the island, offering spectacular views over the harbour. Reach the island on the daily ferry service which runs from the city to the island.
