Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.



Time: 5 - 6 hr return

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.
