Rapaki walk

Rapaki walk @Deb Barker Rapaki walk @Deb Barker

Start your day with a local walk exploring Martinborough on the Rapaki walk, then travel to the Carter Scenic Reserve to observe original remnants of native forest. Then it is onto Kahikatea Gardens in Greytown to view one of the Wairarapa’s great gardens. The day finishes with an exploration of Rapaki walk.

The loop walk crosses farmland and has sweeping views of the Wairarapa valley and Martinborough vineyards. Near its highest point a stile takes walkers to an optional lookout to the picturesque Te Muna Valley. While there are moderately steep slopes and several stiles it is a suitable walk for all age groups. Sturdy footwear is recommended. As you are crossing farmland dogs are not permitted. Large cattle with horns may be encountered and it’s best to walk around the perimeter of their paddock and pick up the track on the other side. The track starts 1 km from the eastern end of Dublin Street on Shooting Butts Road.

Duration 2 hours.
