Another beautiful walk in Tolaga Bay is the Cooks Cove Walkway. This track starts with a short climb up the hill. There you will reach a platform with a wonderful view on the Tolaga Bay Wharf. On the other side of the hill the way goes through a small manuka forest and over grassland. Before you’ll reach the cooks cove you should make a stop at the well-known “hole in the wall”. The cooks cove itself is perfect to have a bath at a hot summer day or just have a picnic.

Suitable for kids

Most of the track is in the open, so don’t forget your sunscreen.

Please note: The track is closed during lambing season. (1st August till labour weekend)
