Botanical Whaka Raupō with Brian Downey and Wendy Everingham
Take a geological and botanical tramp with dedicated local experts to observe and learn more of the volcanic formations and native vegetation in the Port Hills above Lyttelton. Taking your time to stop and observe, discover some of the 140 known native plants in this area fossicking around the rocky knolls looking at shrubs, herbs, ferns and trees. A steep ascent is rewarded with an overland traverse in the region of The Tors and spectacular views of Lyttelton Harbour before descending down the historic Bridle Path.
