Debbie does...round the world
1st Jan 2018 - Adventures in New Zealand
Cullen Point loop track - Marlborough

New Years Day - decided to go for a drive and a walk. Have driven past the Cullen Point Lookout a few times and always meant to stop but never did. Did a bit of research in regards to the Loop walk - advice being you either choose a short steep uphill or a long steady uphill. I decided to go for the long steady uphill but I think it was a wrong decision because it was long. The walk itself is lovely - supposed to be an hour. We went off to the right from the carpark - steep walk down and at the bottom you can deviate off the path to a beach which would make for lovely swimming when the tide is in and a great wee area for kids. Then back up and the track looped around on undulating terrain until the long steady uphill back to the carpark. Lots of stops for me on this section and I was knackered when I got to the carpark so MR went to the look out without me. 

This truly is a lovely fairly easy walk so dont let my lack of fitness put you off.
