A magical walk which includes a bus ride to ensure you walk only one way. Take a short bus ride from Russell to Okiato, the site of New Zealand’s first capital. Hike back through flat coastal wetland, then climb through a mixture of regenerating and magical old native forest, step by step up the valley with points of interest to view where you have been and where you are going. Descend to the mangrove boardwalk of Orongo Bay over looking the oyster farm and your shed destination. This walk has a “bring your own” refreshment option - bottle of wine or a cool beer to sip on while you enjoy the delicacies of the estuary try some beautiful fresh smoked mullet. You can also purchase smoked mullet, flounder and oysters to make it a real feast. (seafood availability weather dependant). Returning from Orongo Bay by bus so as not to spoil your effort.
