Walk 05 – Hikuraki Covenant with with Marie Neal Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust Covenants Officer and Antony Johnson Manager of Hikuraki Valley and Oashore
Join us in the Southern Bays area for magnificent views of Hikuraki, Tokara and other surrounding coves, from an amazing 60 hectare gully protection which is regenerating in natives under careful management. We’ll walk through Hikuraki covenant itself, down to the beach for lunch then back up viewing a different perspective, enjoying the flora and fauna along the way. A good level of fitness is required as there will be some prolonged steep climbs along the way.
