Bledisloe Walkway

Since I broke my arm, I have walked around town lots, but have lacked confidence to get out on the more uneven tracks. So today I broke that barrier a little, with a walk up part of the Bledisloe Walkway, starting from near the Massey entrance.

One of the things I enjoy on the early part of this walkway is this footbridge that takes you over the Turitea Stream.
The stream was flowing quite forcefully today, after recent rain.

 Once you climb a bit you get some lovely views back across the buildings at Massey, and you can also get some views out to the ranges, like this one.

 I hadn't realised it might be some of the downhill bits I might find more scary, on the way back. But I emerged intact!
 And here are the other two little footbridges that you cross...


  1. Glad you went out for the walk, it looks lovely! I must go to New Zealand sometime, it looks so beautiful.

    Merry Christmas & a happy new year!


  2. Yep... took me a while to do the uneven track- I am a bit of a wimp at present! But now I have done half this track, I hope to do the whole thing in the morning...
