2012 Grahams Bush walkway 2

Grahams Bush Walkway

From its eastern entrance in Sawyers Bay, Grahams Bush Walkway climbs steadily through native bush, offering views of Otago Harbour and Otago Peninsula.

The walkway follows a small creek through kanuka and fuchsia before reaching more mature forest, including stands of rimu and miro trees.

Grahams Bush Walkway links with the Organ Pipes Track located further along Mount Cargill Road at the walkway’s western end. The Organ Pipes are spectacular rock columns located on the side of Mount Cargill.


The eastern entrance to Grahams Bush Walkway is signposted from the end of Halls Road. From the west, the walkway can be accessed from Mount Cargill Road.
