Tarawera Outlet to Humphries Bay Walking Track

Tarawera Outlet to Humphries Bay Walking Track begins at the Tarawera Outlet swingbridge. Cross the bridge and take the left hand track at the junction. The track passes a jetty a short distance from the Outlet and progresses westward.

Views of the lake become less frequent as the Tarawera Outlet to Humphries Bay Walking Track climbs inland. The track descends into Humphries Bay - a pleasant picnic and overnight camping area.

Trampers can then take the Eastern Okataina Walkway northwards to access Otangimoana Bay on Lake Okataina (approximately 20 minutes one way) or onwards to complete the Walkway at the Okataina carpark (Tauranganui Bay - a further 2 hours 40 minutes walk).


Special Features
Humphries Bay Campsite is a small, informal camping area at the northern arm of Lake Tarawera. The campsite is accessible on foot or by boat, and camping is restricted to visitors arriving on foot or by kayak only. Visitors are asked to limit their stay to one night. Toilet facilities are provided.
Please Note
You need to be well prepared when tramping on conservation land, especially on longer day walks. Ensure you have warm clothes, strong, comfortable boots, a good raincoat, first aid kit, food and drink, a hat and sunscreen. It is also advisable to leave your tramping intentions with a responsible person, in case you get lost.
