2 minutes from Russell /Kororareka is the coastal rural property of Matatea. This property has breathtaking sea views over the BAY of ISLANDS as well as walks through peaceful bush and rugged private beaches bounded by pohtutukawas. You will be accompanied by a guide who will be knowledgeable about the history of the local area as well as some aspects of Maori bush medicine. This walk is up reasonable slopes at times and is a good work out, however there is no train to catch and as long you are moderately fit the walk should present no challenge. You meet your guide at the roundabout at the end of Long Beach/Oneroa and the walk takes 2and a half hours approximately. Good walking shoes a bottle of water and light water proof jacket make common sense. See You There!
