Little Port Cooper Packsaddle Track – Walk A - with Sam Yeatman
Te Pohue (Camp Bay), located in Lyttelton Harbour, is steeped in history, loaded with tales of French occupation, Maori vegetable gardens and harsh conditions of early European settlement. Te Pohue farm is 306 hectares and ranges from mainly steep tussock covered native pastures thick with over-sown clovers, to flat hilltops and rolling home paddocks. With scenery and views that will blow you away once you're on top of the farm, your hiking excursion continues out to a private accessed beach at Little Port Cooper, just as stunning as Camp Bay but more remote. Stop for a lunch break and view the 1890 School House at Little Port Cooper.
