At 919 metres, Mount Herbert is the highest point on Banks Peninsula. The Maori name is Te Ahu Pātiki.
A nice day climb to view Pantagonia from. Accessed from Orton Bradley Park – watch out for rocks that are crusted cow shit pads, and the sea of yellow is very prickly.
Stunning views of mountains, plains and water … right on our back door step.

What is it?
Now that looks like fun at height!
A dream can always be realised if you keep going, no matter the obstacle.
Apartment living, insect style.
Too much sun for this lazy cow!
Which is the rock and which is the foot print thinking a cow shit pad was a rock … clever photography though, same finger used twice!
Must get some walking shoes/boots as the toe nails were stink.
View from Mt Herbert shelter toward Christchurch.
The hills are alive with the sound of ‘yeeooowwww’ as this is gorse in full bloom. And it’s prickly so bloomin hurts!
An extinct volcano of Lyttelton harbour.
Looking south toward Lake Forsyth where big eels live.
