Walk out to see the ship wreck and spot the birds along the way - bring boots or gumboots in Winter as the path gets quite wet.

New Zealand has so many beautiful walks and treks this one just falls by the wayside. It's a level walk through a marshy or dry area depending on the season. Not much to see except a few sea birds and a lot of high grass....More

I had time here for a quick walk. Lots of birds to see on the water treatment ponds. The royal spoon bill chicks were up and flying about as well as lots of grey teal and Canada geese. Well worth it and it's free.

The Wairau Lagoon walkway is a decent short walk, unfortunately i am more of a hills/mountains person. But it is a good walk, and can be linked with the spoonbill track for a longer walk.

Great walkways. I've done it with a family day out and it was great value. Any ability would enjoy this.
