Numerous walks are possible from Fitzroy House. The DOC booklet provides a complete list, however the walks below are all accessible locally. If you need further information about walks, please ask us. Check DOC info for track conditions.

Forest Road (Port FitzRoy - Whangaparapara)

Karaka Bay – no public access tracks currently link Karaka Bay to Port Fitzroy via Glenfern. Please use the road access only. We are working on it!


Longer walks include: Haratonga, Coopers Castle, Kaiaraara, Windy Canyon, Palmers, Hot Springs, South Fork Track, Forest Road or combining several of these to make an overnight trip to do the Aotea loop. A night at Mount Heale Hut is highly recommended.
