As we entered the bush we were watched by a Kaka - a native parrot of New Zealand which is enjoying life on this pest free Island.
The view from the top looking towards Australia.
Our lunch companions - the Weka. A small ground bird who is very keen to steal anything edible that is not guarded.
Coming back down from the summit looking towards Paraparaumu. What a great walk 521m (1,709ft) from sea level to the top. We will all be sleeping well tonight.
