Fabulous off leash area for walking dogs

Fantastic views all the way on this walk. Great for dog walking as the path all the way along the top of the hill is off-leash with lots of interesting smells to sniff and tracks... read more

Fantastic views all the way on this walk. Great for dog walking as the path all the way along the top of the hill is off-leash with lots of interesting smells to sniff and tracks to venture down. On a calm day this is our go-to walking area with the only con being the road access to the area. Extremely... More

We used to live on Tinakori road. It is a really nice walk with great views of Wellington! Unfortunately some pathways are unworkable because of the strong winds.

We spend a LOT of time walking at Zealandia and Otari-Wilton's Bush but Tinakori Hill is also in our hood so we finally had a chance to explore it properly. We started from Orangi Kaupapa Rd and walked through towards Wadestown and back around. There seem to be plenty of tracks to choose from. It's a bit of a wasteland... More

You get fantastic views of Wellington from this park which is reached of Orangi Kaupapa Road in Northland. We take all our overseas visitors there and they love it too.

This is a great way to see Wellington, the harbor and all the surrounding areas. Hike up from the Botanic Gardens and wander the different paths along the ridge and to the various viewpoints.

Great walking tracks through these hills from Glenmore Street up and over to Wadestown, Northland and Wilton. Wonderful views and lots of places to stop for a tea break.

Tinakori Hill is a great place. It is certainly very steep, but the worst part was actually walking up St Mary Street to get to the start of the tracks leading up the hill. The running tracks criss-cross up the hill, so they are actually quite level. Defying common sense, the locals really do run up and down the hill,... More

The hill has a number of scenic tracks, which a great for natural hikers and mountain/hill runners. Most are not too steep, so also suitable for families with small children. The start of most tracks have plenty of parking available as well.
