Ellangowan Scenic Reserve track

Banks Peninsula


Time: 30 - 40 min return

From Akaroa, travel 7 km up Long Bay Road to the Summit Road junction known as the “Cabstand.” Turn onto Hickory Bay Road and travel 1 km to the sign-posted car-park.

From here walk down the road for 5 minutes to pick up the start of the track, marked with a DOC green and gold post. The track climbs to the ridge and then along to a rocky outlook on a 12 metre bluff near the centre of the reserve. It then drops down to meet with Hickory Bay Road, with a short walk back to the beginning.
