Walking Wellington has been a strong seller in New Holland’s city walking guide series since its launch six years ago. And now, to meet the rapid pace of change in the capital, the book is brought up to date in a new edition.
Twenty-one popular walks from the original edition are retained, but with full revisions and updates. In addition, there are two new walks: Old Coach Road (Hutt Valley) and Kapiti Island.
The author’s wide knowledge of conservation lends interest to the recreational walks described.
Each walk gives clear directions, plus details of relevant public transport, refreshment stops and other attractions along the way.
Also included is a fascinating history of both Maori and European settlement of the area, and some of the unique flora and fauna to be found en route.
The walks covered include historic city tours, outstanding wildlife sanctuaries, coastal wildernesses and some of Wellington’s lesser-known scenic attractions.
