Waihou River Walk



We joined the new DTS on their first school outing last Friday to the Waihou River Walk.


The Waihou River walk is only about 30-40 mins drive from our base. It is generally well-known for its clear blue-greenish colour of the water and you can even see trouts swimming. It is BEAUTIFUL!!! The later part of the walk passes some farmland and we got to see some cows really close up too.


It takes about 1 and a half hour to walk one way or you can also walk halfway and turn back. It's an easy trek, even for us city people. I didn't know I could walk 5 km being pregnant and all but it was really quite a nice walk! Even Sophie walked some of the way and was in the stroller the rest of the way. Best of all, the weather was great!

    The Waihou river looks so magical, right out of the pages of a fairytale and Soph is like a little elf pixie there 😉
