Walk through Wellington's beautiful parks and discover picturesque views, stunning flora and fauna, and some early history of the area.
The Northern Walkway guides you along part of the Town Belt from Johnsonville to the Botanic Garden.
The Northern Walkway extends 16km from Johnsonville through several parks via the Town Belt to Kelburn. It takes at least four hours to complete. Various exits to suburban streets allow you to take this walk in stages if you wish.
The walkway has many attractions including spectacular views, picnic sites, children's play areas, unused tunnels, and the Khandallah Summer Pool. It is steep in some places but not difficult overall.
