The Banks Peninsula is a great place for all sorts of sports, in the water or on the hills. One of them is climbing. A drive not to far and even in the wintertime a beautiful opportunity to go out and enjoy the afternoon.
Otepatotu, is the place we get drawn to. Even if you are not a climber and you just like to have a relaxing view, take a walk. From the car park it is about 1 h in return to the top, for more information visit the DOC Website.
