This is where you can walk your dogs, mountain bike trails, running, or bring your lunch or dinner and enjoy the spectacular view, which overlooks the winery, and the tuki tuki river.

If you haven't visited these amazing walking and cycling trails, you need to. The walks range in difficulty, accessible for most. The mountain bike tracks are really only for the competent rider. An incredible setting and absolutely worth a visit.

You can walk for about an hour one way, (low tides). There is a time chart at the entrance to check the timing.

Depends on whether you're carrying a lot of equipment or have younger kids. I'd say to allow 30 minutes if so. Maybe a bit more if you have some among you sort of side-tracking off the trail from time to time - I would... More
