Gibbons Track is located in Whatipu regional park
Once an old logging road running along the top of the Whatipu coastal cliffs, Gibbons Track is now a great track for views over the Whatipu wetland. The track has a steep climb from the Whatipu end; however it is mainly flat and level from that point. There can be some muddy patches after wet weather but the track is not boggy.
For a great day out, you can link walking the Gibbons Track, Muir Track (descends to the Pararaha Valley campground), the Pararaha Valley Track and the Whatipu coastline (the Whatipu Coast walk) and back to the Whatipu carpark (take your sunscreen if you do though, there is not alot of shade on that beach).
Suitable for people of reasonable fitness and experience.
Theft from vehicles is not common but unfortunately can happen.
You should take the same reasonable precautions you take when parking at other locations and remember to lock your vehicle and take your valuables with you.
