All Ages

In this 75-minute downhill walk, we will review how different types of trees and shrubs withstand the challenges of weather, flood-prone soils and other natural phenomena, and how 100-metre-high trees transport water from the ground to their tops, ‘defying gravity’ in the process. The walk will also look at trees’ role in shipbuilding, warfare, aeronautics, musical instrument manufacturing, and medicine.

Meet at Cable Car Entrance Lookout, Upland Road, Kelburn. Cost $5 (cash only, please).

This is part of the regular walks run by the Friends of the Wellington Botanic Garden, they run twice monthly throughout the year with a different topic every time.
Join the Friends for only $30 a year and all the walks will be free, as well as other great benefits.
