Walk the Portage – South: Sunday 8 October, 10.30am Meet Seaside Park, Brady Rd, Ōtāhuhu

We will walk the Ōtāhuhu portage from the Pacific Ocean to the Tasman Sea. The walk will take about two hours one way, with extra time if you choose to climb Mt Richmond. The walk goes as close to the sea as possible, i.e. as far as the now closed Westfield Railway Station. During a traditional portage you would be carrying or rolling a boat or canoe, so you are encouraged to carry a boat of your own – maybe a boat hat or small model boat.
