Located in our local area, Oruaiti Reserve sits between Worser Bay and Breaker Bay on the Miramar Peninsula and with lots of track options it's a great place to walk with your dog!
You can access the reserve from past the playground at Seatoun Beach (Churchill Park). From there you can walk along the coast track to Breaker Bay at low tide or you can take one of the tracks up onto the ridge which offers fantastic views of the harbor entrance.
Once on the ridge you can explore the gun emplacements at Fort Dorset, and take a track to the Pass of Branda which links onto the Eastern Walkway or you can take a track down to Breaker Bay beach.
It can be quite exposed on the ridgeline, to both wind and sun, so be prepared with sunblock, a windbreaker and warm clothing - depending on the conditions.
The tracks and Breaker Bay are on lead areas but you will find lots of dogs off-lead. Nearby off-lead exercise areas include Seatoun Beach and Worser Bay (during winter and off-peak hours in Summer).
