Points of interest along the walk​

Point 1: Riwaka Resurgence Walk – Start

A very comfortable drive out to Riwaka Valley. If you are looking for a relaxing place to have a pick nick this is the place for you. The first photo is of the Riwaka Valley, was taken from the Hawks lookout. Looking at the bottom right hand corner of this photo, that is where the car park is located. There is a very big picnic area around the car park. Plus you will have no problem finding a spot to sit and dangle you feet in the creek and listen to the native birds singing in the trees, what else you could wish for.

Point 2: Riwaka Resurgence Walk

At the start of the track, there is a good information board there for you to read. To the next picnic area is just a short 3 minute walk up the creek. This short section is meant to be wheel chair friendly. Well that is if you happen to have a 4X4 Wheel chain in the boot of your car. So if you are looking for a very quiet and relaxing hideaway that you can drive to during the week days this is the spot. But give it a miss during the week ends it can be to noisy.

Point 3: Riwaka Resurgence Walk

An amazing short walk to the Resurgence is through second growth bush. This bush is not stunning, but it is cool and refreshing on a hot day. You will see a number of small pools as you walk along this track. The pools do look very inviting But after the foot test, I changed my mind very quickly. The water was unbelievable cold.

Point 4: Riwaka Resurgence Walk

The Resurgence, I can only says it is an amazing place.
The last 10M of the track is a little on the rough side.
Because the track runs into a deep gully, not a lot of sun light can reach the ground to dry it out. So the rocks will be a bit slippery and there will be ground a little muddy in places.
