We hiked up the Tirohanga Track to the hilltop for an amazing view of Picton and the harbor. The hike is steep but well worth it for the view. The day was very hot when we were there in Jan 2019 so we were grateful...More

Iz and I stayed at the Top 10 Holiday Park and strolled up this track to catch a view of Picton. Strolled is not really the term to use. At times the track was treacherous due to greasy slippery clay-like mud underfoot threatening to pitch...More
