Whareroa Farm is a large recreation reserve north of Paekākāriki with regenerating native bush and wetlands. The Kāpiti Coast farm has seven remnant blocks of native forest and numerous streams home to over 30 bird species.
It doubles as a working farm and has a network of walking, mountain biking and horse riding trails through retired pastureland, native bush, and wetlands. There are sixteen different trails to explore, many of which lead to superb views of the Coast. There are also wide open picnic areas and a tranquil dell.
This local gem is also a valued connection between Queen Elizabeth Park to the west and the Akatarawa Forest Park to the east (the “hills to sea”). It is a great location whether you’re a walker, runner, mountain biker, horse rider, or want to take the family on an adventure.
Come and ride the infamous Red Tape downhill track (a passion project of the Kāpiti Mountain Bike Club), or take a hike up several trails to the Five Ways lookout, a picnic spot with an extraordinary view of Kapiti Island and the Coast. If you’re up for an adventure, come and take part in the ultimate mountains-to-sea triathlon at the Xterra Wellington Festival.
