About this Event

Kiwis have #gottogetout!

Got To Get Out arranges many FREE outdoor events, to get the communities of NZ active / outdoors / healthy and exploring nature.

For this adventure, The Got To Get Out Wellington Adventurers invite you to hike in the Northern Walkway from Johnsonville to Kelburn!

This easy grade hike is arranged by our volunteer community leaders with the sole purpose of getting the community outdoors, active, and connected.

NOTE: This trip is capped at 10 people - please make sure you get a ticket, and only come if you have a ticket. If you need to cancel, please do so in enough time that someone else can take your spot.

DETAILS:

After meeting up outside Wellington Train Station at 9:15am we will be buying train tickets and then take the Johnsonville Line train at 9:32am from there to Johnsonville (Please make sure to bring a face mask to use on the train).

The walkway starts in Johnsonville and follows the outer Green Belt via Mount Kaukau to the Town Belt in Te Ahumairangi Hill (Tinakori Hill) and the Botanic Garden in Kelburn.

The walkway is 14.9km long and takes at least 4 hours to complete, but can be done in stages. It's steep in some places, but not difficult overall.

Highlights of the walkway include spectacular 360° views of the city, harbour, mountain ranges and the sea, abandoned tunnels, and the city’s oldest reserve.

We will find a beautiful spot along the way to have lunch and after finishing the hike we will walk back into the town.
