This year’s Boulder Bank Walk is on 11 March 2018
Nelson’s Boulder Bank and lighthouse
This is a great event for the family – although very young ones would need to be carried. We take you from Wakefield Quay by bus to the end of Boulder Bank Drive, you walk the 9 km back to the Cut, and we bring you back by boat. Along the way you can go by the baches (owners have been known to offer you a cuppa and give you a peek inside), go up to the top of the lighthouse, listen to speakers on the history of ‘the Bank’ and see Nelson from a different perspective. We also have a barbecue going at the lighthouse so you don’t get too hungry–be sure to bring some cash to buy something to eat.
Buses depart from Guyton’s carpark on Wakefield Quay at 8:15, 9:00 and 9:45 am. The “boat-both-ways” option is available at 10:45 and 11:15. Some tickets will be available on the day, but best to get tickets in advance to get the departure time you want. In any case, please arrive at least 10 minutes prior, and allow extra time if parking your car (Guyton’s carpark is P120, so not suitable).
Tickets are $25 for adults, $15 for children (14&under). Tickets for Boat both ways are $30 and $18. Our ticket sellers are
Knapps Lawyers, Richmond (not open Saturdays)
TSB Bank, Trafalgar St, Nelson
Stoke Garden & Landscapes, Saxton Road
If you don’t get to our ticket outlets, we usually have some tickets available on the day. Be sure to bring sunscreen, a parka, sturdy shoes, water bottle and a hat.
In the event of bad weather, the postponement date is 18 March. Refunds will be available for ticketholders who cannot attend on that date.
