View from the Rapaki Track


The Rapaki track is a popular walking and mountain biking track that starts at Rapaki Road off Centaurus Road. It climbs up along the hills to the summit. It was my first time doing this track which is somewhat surprising considering I’ve lived in Christchurch for over 14 years! It’s an easy walk but quite a long one (especially if like me you’ve pulled a your calf muscle). But just look at the view at the end of it – this is of the banks peninsula.

Here’s a few more shots from the walk. My friends went right up to the very top of the rocks but I didn’t feel up to it with my sore muscles (plus it gave me time to take these photos!).

    Hi Michelle, I’ve been browsing through your photos and got as far back as June 08. They are all absolutely stunning and such a great reminder of how beautiful Christchurch is. We have so many great places to enjoy and so many events throughout the year to enjoy. You have been busy and made the most of every day, I can see. I had looked at Daily Photo sites from European towns that we’ve been to and Christchurch has it all – old and new.
