With Monday being a public holiday carry over from Boxing Day on Saturday, we decided to head out for a picnic. We decided to try out the Tiromoana Bush Walk in Waipara, which turned out to be great. It’s a coastal walk, lots of hills, views of the ocean and clambering through deer gates! Pretty tiring, but views worth the slog!
Head up towards Hanmer from Christchurch and when you get to the Hanmer turn off you will see a petrol station on the opposite side of the road. Take this road (Mount Cass Road) and follow it for around 10km until you see the sign. Part of the road is shingle but not for long. We managed it easily enough in a 2 wheel drive.
