The Truman Track is an easy 600m walk that will take you around 1 hour. The Truman Track walk is along a good benched path and will take you out to a lovely beach. The walk begins in the beautiful sub-tropical rain forest.
In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.
If you are driving south, pull over to your left into the car park then cross over to the other side of the road. The track is well sign posted.
When you have entered the bush, just follow your nose out to the beach. The short bush walk is full of beautiful NZ native trees. Along the way you can read about the native trees of NZ. Then it’s a short walk down rows of native flax bushes which were harvested in the early 1900 to make rope, sacks and mats. What a stunning little beach. If you walk out to the point at low tide you might spot the very large starfish clinging to the rocks. Then take the steps down on the beach. But keep an eye on the tide.
