Honeycomb Rock Walkway

  • Walking

Honeycomb Rock Track follows the dramatic Wairarapa coastline across farmland. It takes in Honeycomb Rock and the wreck of the Tuvalu, a Fijian trader which ran aground a few metres south of the rock on its maiden voyage in 1967.

The shallow bays offer good swimming in nice weather and there is a fur seal colony located approximately halfway along the walk.

Conditions: Closed

No dogs. Closed for lambing during September and October. Return via same track. The walkway is entirely within private property, keep to the marked track. There are no toilets, rubbish bins or suitable sources of drinking water.

How to get here

Glenburn Station, the start of the walkway, is about 60 km east of Masterton. Follow the Gladstone Road to the Te Wharau Road junction about 1 km north of Gladstone. The road is signposted to Glenburn from here and passes through Te Wharau Settlement.
