Wellington Days and Resupply Plan

Waikanae - Island Bay

Like Auckland, for this section you basically only need to cary lunch and snacks. You'll have more views of the South Island and enjoy the last big city on trail. Hopefully you'll have weather like we did to enjoy the end of the North Island trail.

Resupply in Waikanae for 4 Days

Waikanae has a decent sized Countdown for grabbing whatever resupply needs you have. From there, you're town to town with cafes, dairies and gas stations a plenty. If you need gear, it's worth taking a look in Porirua, as many of the outdoor shops are there and not in the city centre.

  • River Pa - Raumati Beach 15km Siggy's Pies in Waikanae were blumin' awesome! Well worth the detour!

  • Raumati Beach - Porirua 32km Paekakariki has some beautiful cafes for a coffee before you head up on to the Escarpment track.

  • Porirua - Ngaio 25km

  • Ngaio - Island Bay 21km
