Come along for a relaxed walk (on lead) among beautiful native garden and bush.
Otari-Wilton's Bush is one of Wellington's treasures featuring a unique plant sanctuary and forest reserve and includes 100ha of native forest and 5ha of plant collections. Some of Wellington's oldest trees are here, including an 800-year-old rimu.
We'll meet up at the Information Centre and go from there, following a series of colour coded trails for a bit of an explore, and we can stop for a rest at the Troup Picnic area.
So bring along a snack if you like (and treats for the pooch). There are streams and water fountains to get water from for the dogs.
We will then loop back and return to the Information Centre.
There's normally plenty of parking available in the car park at the main Wilton Road entrance. Otherwise there's a second car park further down off Churchill Drive at the Crofton Downs end.
As with any walk in the NZ outdoors, make sure you are equipped with appropriate footwear, and warm & waterproof clothing, just in case. If the weather is particularly bad, I will send out an email the morning of the walk advising of cancellation.
This will be an on-lead walk for our dogs in compliance with Otari-Wilton Bush requirements.
Looking forward to having you join us!
