Do you enjoy walking in Wellington's tracks?

We have some great tracks at Manawa Karioi Ecological Restoration Project in Island Bay. Join us for a one-hour guided walk through our network of tracks on February 19.

You will be guided through this unique landscape and hear about the 25-year-old restoration project and what has been achieved.

Started in 1990 as an initiative of land owners Tapu te Ranga Marae, the Manawa Karioi Ecological Restoration Project has helped reintroduced many plant species that have been absent from south Wellington for over a century.

In turn, this has helped native bird species to self-introduce to the area.

The walk will cover roughly 2km, which is 60% of the total tracks. Besides viewing the plantings (some of which are now 10m high) the walk will touch on local history and take in some views from Island Bay all the way to the distant Tararua Ranges.

Interested? Then come along! Meet at the Tapu te Ranga Marae car park, up the driveway signposted at the end of Danube St, Island Bay.

We depart at 11am sharp. A donation of a gold coin for individuals and $5 for a family would be appreciated.

A moderate level of fitness and appropriate footwear is required as none of the tracks are paved. We will go ahead regardless of weather.
