This wide-ranging tour visits five of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most important historic sites that together “have a narrative more important than Waitangi” (Harry Evison). It includes homemade afternoon tea at the Akaroa Heritage Park, and visits areas of the Wildside and Hinewai Reserve not visited by Banks Track.

Leaving at 12:15pm and arriving back to the Banks Track bus stop at 3:15pm the tour time fits nicely between arriving to Akaroa and transport to the first night of the walk.

It takes you to places just on the edges of the Banks Track, places you pass by and wonder about.
