Kohi Point walkway winds its way around the steep terrain
that forms the headlands between Ohope Beach and Whakatane.
A 2-hour walk from Ohope the track first finds magnificent vistas of Ohope
Beach and then discovers Otarawairere Bay. You
can see on the aerial photograph the track climbing up and over the headlands
and then along the ridge parallel to the Whakatane River.
Average fitness is required as there are some extended inclines.
The track has access to the site of Tois Pa or Kapu TeRangi.
A Historical reserve steeped in Maori Tradition. Click
on the plaque below and read about this Chef of considerable fame.
The walk forms part of a 7-hour loop walk called The Nga Tapuwai O Toi
walkway or the Footsteps of Toi.
This track, in it entirety, takes in Whakatane, the Mokorua Bird Walk
and the Ohope Scenic Reserve.
See the Kohi Point Vista
page showing the view from various points along the walk.
Rosemary Tully of Whakatane Bird Rescue has prepared some interesting
notes on the bird life you
may encounter on the walk.
If you wish to walk from either end you can organise to use transport
for the return journey or, if you are keen, continue on the footsteps
of Toi and return to your accommodations.
Please respect the wildlife.
The Grey faced Petrel nests on the headlands and the nest sites are protected
by conservation rules.
Please read the signs.
Take your litter with you and enjoy this easily accessible and delightful
day tramp. If you
