 Image No. Orongorongo-1


Orongorongo River, Rimutaka Forest Park, near Wellington

The Orongorongo River can be accesssed by walking the beautiful bush covered Orongorongo Track. This track is about 5.2k long and runs from the Catchpool Valley to the Orongorongo Valley. The Catchpool Valley is located 12k down the Coast Road from Wainuiomata in the Hutt Valley. It took us about 90 minutes to walk the track (one way), but if you don't stop to take photographs, you may walk it a little quicker than this!

The Orongorongo River is in the southern Rimutaka Ranges. There is a fairly steep descent down to a bridge at the end of the Orongorongo Track.

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels, from the original width of at least 4900 pixels (or 6000 pixels from my full frame cameras). In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
