Nice views from two lookouts and thats about it. Long and steep walking on farmland, and not much to see in forest.
As we had very strong winds, it was quite creepy walking through forest along many fallen trees and expecting the next one to break :-(
Would not recommend it under these conditions

Very steep tramping track. Nice views from above make it worth it!

Very steep walk from Cable Bay. It was worth the sweat as the view over the turquoise ocean are stunning and the forests beautiful.

Lovely walk up the hill with a great view. The shortest option is approximately 30-45 minutes up and 20 minutes down. There is no real path as it is just up the hill with some sheep and cows.

Nice view over the bay and the island. Beware of the sheep and cows - they look hungry.

A lovely walk that goes through mountains and a very nice forest and ends at a beautiful lookout.

The walk to the Cable Bay takes around two hours one way and goes over very steep hills. It has some fantastic lookouts over the ocean.

Very good walk, the scenery is amazing. Be aware that the walk is not as easy as classified on the DOC website.

Gorgeous stoney beach, lovely walk to lookout and a great little cafe which serves first class food and wine. (And they make an excellent coffee).
