Leg 1 – Wainuiomata Road to Fitzroy Bay

With the purchase by the Greater Wellington Regional Council of Baring Head it is possible that in future the GHW route can be started or finished at Ōrua-pouanui /Baring Head on the Wainuiomata Road.

Note that there is no public access along the coast road (Fitzroy Bay) between lake Kohungaptera, Parangarahu Lakes to /Baring Head/Ōrua Pouanui without the permission of the two private landowners. If you require access, please contact the Park Ranger Jo Greenman at Jo.greenman@gw.govt.nz
