Miniature tramping huts appear on Te Aranui o Pōneke

Miniature Hikes is a public art project by art collaboration KemiNiko. The project consists of seven miniature tramping huts erected around the Wellington area. Two of them are on Te Aranui o Pōneke/ Great Harbour Way, although their size is such that you shouldn’t rely on them for accommodation!

At Tarakena Bay just west of Breaker Bay and the Wahine memorial, on Leg 7 of the GHW, several micro huts form the Tarakena trail. You can find them easily by following the walking track on the western side of the bay, and looking for the bright orange huts on rocky shore.

Further along on Leg 7 at the old quarry just to the west of Owhiro Bay, is Robin Hut, named in memory of Robin Buxton, killed by rock debris when crossing a river in the Rees Valley, Otago.
