If you like bush walks then you will enjoy this - nice wide paths (although there are no signs so we went round in circles). Laughed at the "dissenters cemetery"

Lovely bushwalk. Mostly natural bushland, it is an enjoyable walk on a nice day. It is up near the lighthouse, an easy walk from where the cruise ships tenders let you off. Also a cemetary in there which I liked to wander around.

This is series of interlinking bush trails abundant with New Zealand native plants and trees. It is locally maintained and really worth a walk. Akaroa is a delight, but for a change from the relative busy nature of the tourist element of the village...to beyond...More

What a beautiful haven - obviously provided by keen local volunteers - in many ways walking through the entry to Tane Gardens is like Time Travel. Towering old trees planted in the 19th century, a charming old politically incorrect children's playground, a cemetry for Anglicans...More

Lovely historical park to wander through with New Zealand native bush. There is a children's playground just in from the entrance.
