Wrights Hill loops

Choose between two walks: the 2.4 km Lookout loop walk, taking about 1.5 hours or the 1 kilometre Salvation Bush walk, taking about 45 minutes.


Lookout loop walk

Start at the Middle Car Park on Wrights Hill Road. Cross the road and head up John’s Track. Take your first left and you will shortly come to the Lookout Track. Take this track up the hill.

Continue until you come to a T-intersection and turn right to the lookout and Wrights Hill gun emplacements.

Follow directions to the Karori Sanctuary fence line and turn right. You will come to a major intersection; turn right, away from the fence line and head towards the grassed area known as the Parade Ground. Go past the Parade Ground, on your left, and continue on the track, returning to the car park.

Salvation Bush walk

Start at the Middle Car Park on Wrights Hill Road.

Head from the road in to the bush and look for the Salvation Track to Fitzgerald Place.

Continue along this track until you come to Landsdowne Track. This leads you back in to the bush. Follow this track towards Burrows Avenue. Follow directions back to the car park.
