10 Mile Valley – the Secret Life of Trees


A walk up 10 mile valley

The 10 mile valley just down from Breakers is one of our favourite walks.

With towering limestone cliffs and native bush galore it is a magic sight.

    In the words of Brian Johnson (AC/DC) “It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll” and having ridden to the top of Ten Mile those words hold true ……. the view from up there is STUNNNING !!!! As is the whole valley.

      It is a stunner for sure – and so close. We were watching Top Gear recently and they were oohing and aahhing about where they were – we looked at each other and said “10 mile valley” – good old West Coast has it all right here.

  6. What a beautiful set of pictures πŸ™‚ one day I’ll get over to NZ for a holiday.

      Thanks Charlotte. I hope you do make it to NZ – I’m sure you would really enjoy. Lots of lovely places to share your wonderful voice with (Cathedral Caves etc).
