Walk and Talk French - Marchez en parlant français
Next walk / La prochaine balade
Sunday 31 March 1:30pm Whispering Falls walk
The next Alliance Française walk is planned for Sunday 31 March and is to Whispering Falls, off the Hacket Track. The start of the track is at the Hacket carpark, which is off Aniseed Valley Road.
Take Highway 6 through Hope and turn left at Aniseed Valley Road. When you get to the T-junction, turn left and the carpark is approximately 9.5 km along the road. It takes around 45 minutes from central Nelson to the carpark.
The track is varied, from easy walking along a gravel road to clambering over rocks, and there is one straightforward river crossing and one swing bridge. Walking poles would be helpful for crossing the river. It takes an hour each way at a brisk pace; allow 2-3 hours to enjoy the scenery and have a break at the falls. After a drought is not the best time to see a waterfall, but it's lovely nonetheless. Zanahé took these photos last Wednesday.
We'll meet at the carpark at 1:30 and aim to be back there by 4:30pm. We could have beer and pizza at Eddyline Brewery near the Richmond swimming complex afterwards.
