What you'll do

We'll meet at an agreed location, usually the place you are staying. I will provide a briefing of the trip that we will be doing including a safety briefing. We will explore the Wellington South Coast and Taputeranga Marine Reserve in my 4wd vehicle and en-route I'll provide commentary about the Wellington region, it’s history and the natural environment. We'll visit the Brooklyn wind turbine scenic lookout for stunning panoramic views of the Wellington region. We traverse the rugged hills above the South Coast on a private road to Hawkins Hill 500m above sea level, the highest lookout point around Wellington, for spectacular views across the Cook Strait to the South Island, and east to Cape Palliser. We access Long Gully Station 4wd tracks through rugged land to Sinclair Head on the South Coast. Known as the 'Red Rocks' area, this is listed in Lonely Planet as one of Wellington's must-do activities. Along the way I'll explain some of the significant cultural, geological, and enviromental events that have impacted on the Wellington region. The trip is scheduled to experience the stunning sunsets that are observed from the South Coast accessible only by 4wd vehicle.
