Great walk! It starts in the heart of central Wellington near Parliament and ends at the south coast, 12km away in Island Bay. The walk takes about 6−7 hours but can be done in stages. Although the route is called city to sea, the marker posts mean you can walk it in either direction. You can catch a No 1... More

My wife and I decided to spend half a day waking instead of the usual shopping. We were very pleased with our choice to take the City to Sea walk from central Wellington, over the hills behind the City, ending at Island bay. The map said 6 hours, we did it in 4.5 hours. Lots of ups and downs, and... More

Thats the number of steps you climb and then descend if you decide to take the challenge and set out on this exhilarating walk up into the hills that overlook marine reserve which extends out to an old rock quarry and beyond that a seal colony. The views are stunning and worth the effort required - comfortable sports shoes a... More

This is an amazing trip on a clear day, walking in and out of the green belt gives photographers some lovely perspective shots. Get someone to drop you off at Island bay early morning 9am then walk through, being as it threads through the southern suburbs you can duck down to adelaide road anytime and catch a bus through to...
