The Bay of Islands Walking Weekend
Paroa Bay Surprise (Walk 3)
We can’t tell you everything, otherwise it won’t be a surprise! But we can tell you a few things – your final destination is Paroa Bay Winery which is a stunning family owned boutique vineyard with traditional handmade, sustainable wines, and to top it off incredible sea views.
As you walk, you will enjoy lush native bush, expansive stunning views of the Bay of Islands, and a beautiful waterfall. Oops, too much information! The walk is less than 6km, medium to hard grade, but the hard grade is optional! All will be explained on the day! There are bees to pass and ropes to use – but don’t be put off!
The walk finishes with wine tasting at Paroa Bay Vineyard. These wines are all made with traditional techniques of viticulture and dry grown vines to create distinctive handcrafted wines of character in low yields, reflecting the white clay soils and warm climate of the Bay of Islands.
Limited numbers on this walk, which is over private land. You won’t be able to walk it any other time of the year! Enjoy!
