Festival Finale
Join guides Linda Simpson and Anna Brealey for this five day, 100km Te Ara Hura walking adventure which will see you circumnavigate Waiheke.

You will be walking 5-7 hours at a moderate pace to complete approximately 20km per day, so a good level of walking fitness is required.

Day 1 – Wednesday 20 Nov

This is the eastern section which begins with a private land treat through the beauty that is Rorohara. Today is very scenic and rural, taking in plenty of coastal road and track and finishing in Orapiu for well deserved refreshments.

Day 2 – Thursday 21 Nov

This is the tougher bush section of Te Ara Hura, absolutely spectacular views with lots of ups and downs, and the notorious “rope climb”.

Day 3 – Friday 22 Nov

Start with the beautiful Te Whau Peninsula before winding your way through the residential centre of the island and finishing on the shores of Blackpool beach.

Day 4 – Saturday 23 Nov

Today is all about the coast. Walk the Headlands either side of Matiatia Bay and experience breathtakingly beautiful views in all directions before finishing your day in the bustling village of Oneroa.

Day 5 – Sunday 24 Nov

A day of gorgeous beaches, coastal vistas and several regenerating reserves, ending back where you started 5 days ago, at Rorohara in Pie Melon Bay. It’s now time to celebrate the completion of 100kms!

What an incredible opportunity – grab your friends and get ready for five days of challenging fun!

PLEASE NOTE: There is a fee of $100 for this walk to cover shuttle costs and your Finale Ticket.
