Walking Track Category: Long Walks
The Kowhai Valley Track is located in the Tryphena area towards the end of Rosalie Bay Rd.
About 200m down from the entrance the track diverges into the Station Rock track and the Kowhai Valley track.
The Station Rock track leads to Station Rock (1.5hrs) at the top of Medland Rd which can also be accessed via the Station Rock Road Walkway. From Station Rock you can get some of the best views of both sides of the southern end of the island. The radio masts for our local station Aotea FM are also located here.
The Kowhai Valley track begins with quite a steep walk down to the valley floor and then continues through some coastal forest before reaching Medlands Beach. Approximately 2.5 hrs.
