This is about some stunning short walks and the beauty of Golden Bay


I will pick you up from your Hotel and we will drive to Mrs Smiths a local cafe in the heart of Riwaka with the best coffee and yummy cakes for morning tea. We will then make our way to Hawkes Lookout for a short walk with stunning views across the Motueka and Riwaka Valleys. It will then be down through the valeey with panoramic views for a 20 min walk to a viewing platform through a series of limestone blocks, some sculpted into wonderful shapes by water. The tentacle-like roots of northern Rata trees that hang down many of the blocks create an eerie atmosphere. Nikau palms are also a feature of the reserve. Your next stop will be an Art Cafe for lunch before making our way out to Waunui Falls which also has a stunning bushwalk to get there with Giant Nikau Palms. After this it will be a return trip to Nelson via a tasting trail of your choice.
