Find out more about the Water Collection area and how this freshwater source ends up in Wellington's taps during this four hour walk. You’ll get to experience a beautiful native forest which is considered one of the best examples of lowland broadleaf forest in the lower North Island.

Not only this, but the walk takes you along the Orongorongo Pipeline Tunnel and to see the historic Morton Dam. The Morton Dam is one of the largest early concrete dams in New Zealand and has special engineering heritage significance because it was the first and largest of only two reinforced concrete buttress dams to be built in New Zealand.
