Famous for its fertile hills and avocado orchards, come on a cross country trek with us and enjoy the history and variety of this part of ‘old Mangawhai’.
This is an opportunity to learn about fascinating regenerative techniques, including permaculture, to improve soil health, as well as getting an insight into the operation of an avocado orchard. From here it’s a cross county hike through private property, including a bush walk and and historic pa site, to the estates of King Road with their olive groves and wine tastings. This is an informative walk with hosts sharing knowledge and expertise of their land and produce. There is a lot to learn about these fertile hills.
