Tips from locals
Park at the i-site car park and enjoy a gentle walk along the Maitai river followed by a 20 minute uphill walk to the summit.
The centre of New Zealand is a 30-60min walk/run at the top of a botanic hill with incredible views of Nelson and is well worth the effort. Excellent for a evening stroll.
This is an awesome place to view the whole Bay but make sure you go up on a clear day, not a log walk but you have to walk uphill all the way.
The approximate centre of the country is (conveniently) located at the top of a nice little hill climb.
