Day walk Cape Brett to Deep Water Cove
Departs Paihia / Russell cruises to Cape Brett via Hole in the rock an early morning water taxi ride. Step ashore at the old landing, step by step up to the last light keepers house and then you, settle in for a hard climb up past the lighthouse, with many photo stops along the way. Once cresting the last of many teasing peaks navigate your way through salt burnt tussock country, windswept stunted Manuka and glimpses of mature forest for a well-earned break looking back over your trail. You then wander down through significant canopy forests, evidence of Maori habitation before descending to the old fishing village of Deep Water Cove and your water taxi at 3:30pm to return to Paihia / Russell.
