Super balade plus tranquille que Wai-o-tapu moins spectaculaire mais tout au si belle. Le retour en bus car ce n'est pas une boucle est vraiment appréciable.

A great way to spend half a day and experience so many sights and smells. We had perfect weather so the walk was very enjoyable.

A walk which is easily managed for the most part, while also providing some challenge for those who want it. To see, first hand, the effect of Nature at her destructive best/worst, on a physical landscape, cannot fail to leave the walker with a sense of absolute awe. Boat trip on lake worth doing!
