Catch the passenger ferry from Russell to Paihia, stroll around the many points, beaches and bays with the matching changes of flora and fauna all the way to Opua. The inner bay landscape now hides history, lost to age in progress, army camps, boat building sites.

There you catch the car ferry for a 5-minute crossing to Okiato, the site of New Zealand’s first capital. From Okiato you walk on boardwalks, encounter some challenging terrain and then settle into more stunning mangrove boardwalks, before following a small stretch of road back into Russell. Perhaps you’ll recognise the birdsong, do keep an eye out for Weka between Okiato and Russell. Stop for a refreshment at Opua Store and Russell Garage.

Duration - 6 Hours.
Distance - 17 km.
Ticket includes both ferries.
Grade - Hard.
Category: Family friendly. Max. Walkers: 20

Please note: The Okiato to Orongo Bay walk is part of this walk.
