The Northern Walkway is a half-day trek along Wellington’s outer Green Belt. It spans from Johnsonville to the Botanic Gardens via Te Ahumairangi Hill (Tinakori Hill), Trelissick Park and Mount Kaukau.
Wind your way through hilly bush-clad terrain and discover abandoned railway tunnels and the city’s oldest scenic reserve. From the highest vantage points, you’ll get 360-degree views from the Remutaka Ranges and back towards the city and the sea.
The trail has many entrances so if you’re short on time you can just complete a section.
