A picturesque walk within easy access from Wellington or the Hutt Valley. Adequate parking available and shirt walks are family oriented.

A beautiful area to walk and take in the native flora & fauna. Provides a good perspective of the local bush, coupled with the history of the previous use of the area. Take a walk at least to the waterfall.
