2 Banks Peninsula
Can be accessed from Diamond Harbour Road or Orton Bradley Park. Can also be accessed from Packhorse Hut or Port Levy Saddle (via Summit Road Walkway)
This is a strenuous walk from the sea to the summit of Mt Herbert/Te Ahu Pātiki, the high point of Banks Peninsula.
The walkway mostly follows a farm vehicle track up a volcanic spur.
There is a shelter on the saddle between Mt Herbert and Mt Bradley.
South Island ▷ Canterbury ▷ Banks Peninsula
Wonderful walkway with view of each side, last part only made for good walkers - 2 day trip, 5 hours each day.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
