Wainuiomata Water Walk (Event two)


Wainuiomata Water Walk (Event two) Back to Events calendar

The Wainuiomata Water Collection Area is one of the Wellington region's secret places - a piece of land not usually open to the public. Bookings are now open for free guided walks into the catchment. Join us for a rare chance to explore lush native forests and crystal clear rivers.

Join our informative and entertaining guides to find out how we harvest the crystal clear river water and transport it to our Wellington communities. During the four hour walk (approximately) we cover the Orongorongo pipeline tunnel, historic Morton Dam and stroll through lush native forest. Bookings are essential for this event.
