Drive up Mount Sea Road to the top car park and you will see the two entrances to the arboretum.
There is a seat to stop and rest on (before or after), which has some glimpses of the sea through the trees below.
|ABOVE: The rest area at the carpark at the top of Mount Sea Road. The track top right leads up the hill to the top of the arboretum and a lookout area. There is a track beyond, that is not complete and not recommended at this stage. You walk back down the track to the carpark area.|
BELOW: Left: The seat has a memorial plaque - "In Loving Memory of RON HALL 1938 - 2017 Forever in our hearts" Right: View down to the lower track that does a circuit from Currie Street to Brunton Crescent Entrance and back up to Martin Street. There is a link to Korokoro Crescent entrance.
Enjoy the bush walks around Thames!
