Waitaria

Waitaria Bay Walkway

Located in the Marlborough Sounds, this short walkway provides walking access over private farmland to the eastern end of Bobs Knob Scenic Reserve.

The 233 hectare reserve is home to a diverse range of animals, including large land snails, and possesses plants characteristic of both the lowlands and cooler uplands.

The Waitaria Bay Walkway entrance is located on Kenepuru Road and the poled route leads walkers across private land to the 4km-long reserve overlooking Kenepuru Sound.

Some sections of this walkway cross private land and visitors are asked to stick to the marked route, respect all signposted conditions of access and follow the New Zealand Outdoor Access Code.

Access

Waitaria Bay Walkway can be accessed from Kenepuru Road, on the northern shore of Kenepuru Sound.
