Walk Torea Saddle to Mistletoe Bay

Follow the ridge line again, through regenerating native bush. Take a side walk leads to the Onahau Lookout just before the descent to Te Mahia Saddle begins.


Drop down to Lochmara Lodge for a treat, taking time to rock in a hammock, leap off a rope-swing into the sea, and enjoy some sustenance at the seaside restaurant.

Further on you’ll come to Mistletoe Bay, where the Mistletoe Bay Eco Village has whare, campsites and a café at the edge of the water. There are some short walks to explore here as well.

As parts of this section cross over private land, you'll need to purchase a QCTLC Pass from the Picton, Blenheim or Havelock isite Visitor Information centres beforehand.
