Rakaumangamanga – Cape Brett Lighthouse Overnight Walk - walk 15

This is a must do walk! Spectacular, breathtaking, challenging, rewarding, fun - were all words used this describe this walk last year.

You are going to want a good breakfast to take this on, for those who want to walk all day.

Water taxi out to Rawhiti, with a wet feet landing, boots on and the the start of the Cape Brett Walkway. This must be one of the best hikes in New Zealand – a must do! A difficult but totally rewarding walk. You will see evidence of the pest control operation, crossing over a pest proof fence, the regrowth of plant species, presence of Fantail, Wood Pigeon, Pied Tit and Tui. Once you have finished the first hour and conquered Pukehuia, snack and rest then enjoy the ridge walk out along the entire Cape Brett Peninsula. With views over the bay behind you enjoy the sights to the south Te Toroa, Whangaruru to the horizontal Poor Knights with a pack full of your daily requirements you will arrive at the lighthouse keepers accommodation just in time for sunset.

All the ingredients will be delivered for a typical trampers feast, not flash but filling. The house is comfortable with bunk rooms, and the kitchen has cooking facilities and is fitted out with long wooden tables - the perfect spot to swap tramping stories.

Next morning – breakfast and coffee looking out over the Pacific Ocean – it is truly paradise.

Ease your way down the steps to the water and hop aboard a water taxi for an extreme ride back to Russell. Alternative option due to weather, pack up and return to Deep Water Cove to meet taxi!

This is another walk that doing on the weekend is a cost effective way to do this walk - as walk taxi's required, and you also have your food supplied and delivered to the hut for you. All you need to carry is the food you eat on the walk and your water.
