Kaituna Valley Settlers’ Walk with Rosemary Baird and Melissa Reimer.

Kaituna Valley Road is the gateway to native bush reserves and has several wonderful walking tracks.
It was used by Māori as a travel and trading route and was settled by Europeans after it was purchased by the Rhodes brothers in the 1850s.

This guided walk led by Heritage New Zealand focuses on the homes, schools, and sites of these early settler families.

Starting at Glenrowan homestead the walk heads along Kaituna road and continues up the farm track from Tophouse.

The destination and lunch stop is a historic stand of tōtara trees. The return walk includes afternoon tea at Kowhai Hills Homestead which is a fundraiser for the Kaituna Valley Red Cross Society (cost included in ticket price). 

5 hours. $15
Bring: Shoes with good grip and food.

Once you have booked and paid for this walk the departure location will be emailed to you.
