Duration: 5 hours

Start Time: 8:30 am - Meeting at the end of Lindermann Road, at the look out

Enjoy a walk through time exploring Lindemann Loop track, imagining life in the 1900.  Trek past waterfalls, rock relics and appreciate the Kauri milling and dam while you take a glimpse of time, to our forebears hard work. 

A beautiful walk that’s not too strenuous however will need your footing and balance, as you cross rocky pathways and tree routed footpaths.  If there is a lot of rain, we will cross a creek. 

BYO snacks and water and sensible walking shoes and a rain jacket in case needed. 




  • Bring Food and Drink
  • Raincoat
  • Covered Shoes

PLEASE NOTE: Participants are responsible for their own safety equipment, food, water, clothing and vehicles.

The Festival is a non-profit event which relies heavily on volunteers, and donations to help pay for the organisation and promotion of the month-long event.

Any contribution received towards ECHO is greatly appreciated and helps to ensure the success and continuation of the festival.

COVID-19 Information

  • The festival is Fully Operational in RED.
  • Vaccine passes are required.
  • Please register for all walks.

Regarding the removal of the Vaccine Pass Mandate by the NZ Government on 4th April 2022, The ECHO Walking Festival organising committee has given the matter careful consideration and has decided to continue our requirement for Vaccine Passes on our walks this year. The reasons are as follows:

  • We are aware of a number of at-risk walkers who have already registered for walks based on the original criteria.
  • Some of our guides are in the at-risk category.
  • While we understand our walks are in the outside environment, we are required to stay close together and often on narrow tracks. It is impossible to social distance in these settings and mask-wearing is not practical due to the exertion required on walks.

We know this will be disappointing to many and we ask for your continued understanding as we look forward to a time where everyone can come along and enjoy our walks.
