Warkworth Walks – Walks Worth Walking
More than just walks!
Started in November 2009 and incorporated as a not for profit in 2012, Warkworth Walks offer guided walks over land usually not open to the public.
This weekend there were another 13 spectacular guided trails through beautiful Warkworth, Mahurangi, Matakana, Kaipara, Leigh and Puhoi areas.
The walks traversed many of our most stunning coastal tracks, some over normally inaccessible areas on private land, leading to many very special places.
The walks are graded for all fitness levels and led by experienced local guides and paced to suit everyone.
There was plenty of time to catch your breath, enjoy the breathtaking views and pause at interesting points to take photos and swap tales.
The included lunches vary according to the walk – some picnic style, others sit-down or barbeque meals.
On the Sandspit to Brick Bay Sculpture Park which we did on the most postcard-perfect day, we started at Sandspit Holiday Park then walked around the beautiful coast line to the Sculpture Park via Whisper Cove. After a guided tour through the private part of the sculputer park, we enjoyed a sumptuous platter lunch, a glass of some of the area’s best wine at the “glass house” winery followed by time to wander through the expansive and unique Sculpture Park.
We walked across private property and farmland, enjoying expansive, fantastic views of Kawau Bay and the Hauraki Gulf.
So for 2016 gather a group of friends, work colleagues or family and join us for a fun walking weekend. Your experience in and around Warkworth will be rewarding and you will make new friends, learn something new about our unique environs and enjoy the local hospitality.
