I'm Marios, delivering the best of Aotearoa's nature walks to your device.

I've personally walked hundreds of New Zealand's tracks and spent months in libraries uncovering interesting information on New Zealand/Aotearoa. And you'll find a slice of that research on this page - enjoy!

Information

200 m return | 5 minutes return

The haze will likely mask the views, which are endless. On clear days you can see Mount Taranaki, the Southern Alps and everything in between. This is an impressive viewpoint, especially considering your vehicle does the hard work.

Access

1.5 km west of Woodville on SH3, turn into Woodlands Road, which becomes unsealed after 3 km. From here on it’s 10 km of rough, winding unsealed road. There are corrugations galore, ruts and numerous hairpins. It’s certainly a hair raising drive to the TV transmitter on the summit.

Track

To the west of the transmitter is a short track to the trig.
