Charming Creek Walkway

  • 2 hr 30 min – 3 hr one way
  • Easy

One of Buller's longer established walkways that is also open to mountain bikers.

The majority of the 10.5 km route follows an old railway formation. The route is littered with historic sawmilling and coalmining relics.

The lower Ngakawau gorge section is spectacular and it was a major engineering feat when the railway was put through this rugged area in the early 1900's by a local sawmiller.
