Rapaki to Bowenvale

Located in the heart of the farmed tussock landscape with rocky outcrops and a range of adrenalin raising activities - the ultimate outdoor gym.

Rapaki and Crater rim trackss 8 1500

Drive to the top of Rapaki track, Bowenvale Avenue or Mount Vernon Farm Park car parks for access to biking, running and walking tracks and rock climbing opportunities.


Dogs must be restrained by a leash at all times.

Getting there

There is parking available at the end of Bowenvale Avenue, Hillsborough Terrace, Hansens Park and Fifield Terrace. The latter two locations are excellent choices to get a five minute warm up along the river before tackling the hill tracks. Alternatively, drive to the top of the Rapaki Track via Dyers Pass and the Summit Road for access to easier options.

Walks and Tracks

Tracks in this area run from the Rapaki Track across to Huntsbury Spur, Bowenvale Valley and up to Victoria Park. They can be combined to make a variety of interesting short and half day walks.
