Description

The Heritage Trail starts and ends near the beach and car park at Okoromai Bay. The track starts with a gradual uphill through a tunnel of trees, and crosses the road where you'll have to enter and exit the park’s pest-control enclosure. From here, you'll run across a large pasture, making for the yellow-blazed marker at the top of the hill.

From here, the trail passes an old pillbox and joins a gravel road and the blue-blazed Lookout Track for a short way to the lookout. From the lookout, the trail heads north then loops back west, running along a stream and heading toward Waterfall Gully and the Waterfall Gully car park. From there, head back south, paralleling the road along an interesting wetland to end back at the car park where you started.
