Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Oh my goodness, what an amazing walk! We took our dog, a collie cross and she valiantly traversed the fences via the styles over fences. Loved discovering the statues and art installations along the way.
    We then went looking for the waterfall along the signed waterfall track but didn't find one, not even a trickle!
    Definitely a walk to recommend, not that steep, relatively easy walking but I wouldn't have wanted to carry a child over the many styles.

    Right from the first night at the Onuku Hut I knew we were in for a treat. We ate dinner outside in the sun with the beautiful view of Akaroa Harbour and the birds and nikau palms. So good to leave our packs for pickup the next morning, because the next few hours were pretty hot and steep...and stunning. I was so impressed with the accommodation, and the thought and love that has gone into the tracks and signs and the cottages we stayed in. I left my phone at Onuku on the first night and it was hand delivered at Stony Bay, wrapped protectively in a box decorated with French stamps! I was very grateful for this. We loved the track and there were lots of Wow moments. I would recommend the three day trip so that you get to see and appreciate more. Many thanks to the land owners for allowing us to share their treasure.

    There are 2 parts to Woodills Track, with the northern leg running from #68 Woodills Rd through to Tree Crops Farm on Rue Grehan & Woodills Track South continues across Rue Grehan and descends via Rue Balgourlie to the centre of Akaroa. At Tree Crops Farm you need to cross a stream on rather large boulders.
    Part way up the track you can branch off to the Heritage Park or link with the Curry Track & continue all the way to BrownTop Saddle.
    The views are better higher up.
