It took me about 4 hours in total (return) in do the whole thing (including the nukes nose top) spending a good time on the summit, one of the best landscapes of northland, worth it totally. The hut also looks very good to spend one night, lot of space and wide kitchen, terraces to appreciate the bay...



Wow, what a view! It took us 2h to the hut (where we slept) and 30 min to climb to Duke's Nose. There is a river to cross twice in the middle. You can take the water taxi to go back but it's 25$pp but we walked the way back

We went for 1hr to the Wairakau stream 2hr return. Lovely walk. Slippery at any point. Turnoff opposite the Chapel on an uphill dirt road. About 1km, Very little parking. Maybe 3cars but only 2were there including us.
