Walk 08 - Lands End Long Day with Guides Sinclair Bennett and Christine Stroud
This spectacular walk is back by popular demand! Explore the western headland of Akaroa Harbour and enjoy the volcanic geology of the coast and gullies. Walking across open farm land at Lands End we will enjoy dramatic coastal views. Highlights include the beach at Squally Bay (seals and birds usually present), and then onto the aptly named Scenery Nook. We make our way around to Timutimu Head with its fabulous view of Akaroa Head and Harbour. Heading back up along the ridge we visit Lucas Peak, with a short easy walk back to the start. Mostly easy walking, but with one short very steep downhill section, making a total walk climb of around 740m for the day.
Duration: 7-8 hours walk time plus car pool. Walk length 17.5km. Highest point 390m.
TRAMP - Track mostly unformed with prolonged up and down
