Your guide to exploring all corners of the Tararua District

Published 15 Nov 2022

Our Tararua District is blessed with green spaces everywhere and there are lots of great walks in our backyard. Summer is nearly here so why not get out to enjoy our scenery!

Did you know that Council has a Tararua District Walk/Cycle Guide that can help you choose the perfect place to discover our landscapes, wildlife and heritage? The Walk/Cycle Guide covers 42 walks and tracks in our district, from around Norsewood all the way down to Mt. Bruce and out to our beautiful coast.

The Walk/Cycle Guide has bundled the best walks and tracks that Tararua has to offer and includes information about location and duration as well as detailed maps. The first Walk/Cycle Guide came out in 2019. The 42 walks and tracks in the guide were reviewed last year by a community volunteer who has walked and cycled all the trails listed in the Guide. Based on these recent findings, the current guide has been updated and reprinted. Council is very grateful for this and hopes to provide further information on the review soon.
