Walking Guide - Rosemary Baird

Kaituna Valley is the gateway to native bush reserves and wonderful walking tracks. It was used by Mäori as a travel and trading route, and was settled by Europeans after it was purchased by the Rhodes brothers in the 1850s. This guided walk led by Heritage New Zealand focuses on the homes, schools and sites of these early settler families. The destination and lunch stop is a historic stand of tötara trees. The walk concludes with afternoon tea at Kowhai Hills Homestead, a fundraiser for the Kaituna Valley Red Cross Society.
