Introducing our walkways

The Tiromoana Walkways offer visitors an enticing mixture of panoramic views over hills, valleys and the Pacific Ocean, along with the opportunity to step inside a regenerating native forest, complete with wetlands and wildlife.

The Tiromoana Bush and Mt Cass walkways are both located on Mt Cass Road, off State Highway 1 at the Waipara junction approximately one hour’s drive north of Christchurch. The walking tracks are well signposted and offer a range of options suitable for most walkers of all ages and experience, although a reasonable standard of fitness is required.

At certain times of the year the walkways may close due to the fire risk. Please check this website to ensure the walkways are open before you visit.
