This short, well-defined track is ideal for families. Enjoy the tranquil surroundings of native bush and check out local wildlife. Once you’ve walked the loop, wander over the Balance Bridge and down into Ferry Reserve, a grassy park alongside the Manawatu River, where you can dip your feet into the water. Settle down for a picnic (pack your own) or wander back to the Bridge Cafe for the bus.

The Balance Loop Track and Ferry Reserve Walk is part of the Manawatu Walking Festival which runs over the weekend 28 February – 2nd March 2014 and is focused on bringing together walkers from around New Zealand to experience the variety of great walks in the Manawatu.
This festival has walks for all ages and fitness levels, with plenty of options to choose from including the iconic Manawatu Gorge Track through native bush, a twilight beach walk where you can get sand between your toes and an urban art and sculpture walk to soak up the City culture. There is even a vineyard tour with tasting and a farm walk thrown in for good measure.

Hosting this festival is a wide range of experts ranging from tramping guides and historians through to storytellers, nature experts, experienced walkers and photographers – all of whom are wanting to share their knowledge to help enhance your walking experience in Manawatu.

For more information see the website above, bookings must be made online, there are no ticket sales on the day.
