2011 Te Kuri Farm Walkway view

Te Kuri Farm Walkway

On a clear day Te Kuri Farm Walkway, located on the outskirts of Gisborne City, offers panoramic views as far south as Mahia Peninsula and as far west as Maungapohatu on the eastern fringes of Te Urewera National Park.

The track is fringed by native trees, which are home to a wide variety of bird life including tui, kereru and fantails.

Some sections of this track cross private land and visitors are asked to stick to the marked route, respect all signposted conditions of access and follow the New Zealand Outdoor Access Code.

The walkway is closed from 1 August to Labour weekend each year for lambing season.


Te Kuri Farm Walkway begins at the end of Shelley Road and is signposted from the corner of Ballance Street and Ormond Road in Gisborne City.
