Unfortunately due to poor weather forecast, the Wainui Water Walk on Sunday 20 February has been cancelled.

Bookings required.

Experience the beautiful native forest while our ranger shares stories about the water collection area and how this freshwater ends up in Wellington’s taps.

You’ll get to experience a beautiful native forest which is considered one of the best examples of lowland broadleaf forest in the lower North Island.

Not only this, but the walk takes you along the Orongorongo Pipeline Tunnel and to see the historic Morton Dam. The Morton Dam is one of the largest early concrete dams in New Zealand and has special engineering heritage significance because it was the first and largest of only two reinforced concrete buttress dams to be built in New Zealand.

This walk is restricted to 30 people so get in quick for this exclusive walk led by our knowledgeable park ranger. This walk will require a moderate fitness level and you are likely to get your feet wet so please bring suitable footwear and clothing. Please note that this walk is NOT suitable for children under 14 years of age.
