Begin your day with a walk around the magnificent gardens. Eastwoodhill walks cater for all levels of fitness and abilities, from flat tree lined paths to a steep climb up Mt Arateitei which rewards visitors with glorious views of the arboretum and the surrounding countryside. All walks are clearly signposted and maps are available from the visitors centre.
When you are ready, get on your bike, prepare for a change of pace as you head down Ngatapa Hill, an exhilarating downhill route.
