Whangamumu Whaling Walk

This has been one of our most popular walks. Take a 30 minute bus ride from Russell to the roadside entrance. Get kitted up and comfortable, head across the Tongatapu wetland to start a 40 minute climb to above the tranquil harbour of Whangamumu. A popular anchorage known by coastal travelers as a safe port in a storm. Descend to the beach and take opportunity to visit the remains of a whaling station abandoned in 1932. There will be a small amount of water to paddle through – so be prepared to get wet feet! Have lunch amongst the quiet of empty industry. A short walk to a picturesque waterfall, refill the drink bottle, then make your way back to the main beach, dry feet, boots on and settle in for the steady climb then a leisurely descent to your bus.
