Wellington Southern Walkway Sunday 4th December
A party of four drove to Island Bay enjoyed a 4 hour stroll through some of Wellington’s eastern suburbs back to Courtenay Place. The day was overcast, cool but not cold, ideal for a walk.
The scenery was varied, from the propeller off HMNZS Wellington to Baboon’s on Wellington Zoo, as well as the Basin Reserve and Westpac Stadium cricket venues.
Following the route, not always an easy task it seems on these Wellington walks, was more confusing when the marker arrows kept changing colour, but apart from a few short detours we made good progress, joined the tourists at the Byrd Memorial Mount Victoria lookout before a steep decent to Oriental Bay and a bus back to the car.
