Honeycomb Rock is a spectacular outcrop on the Wairarapa coast, named for its remarkable cell-like weathered pattern which gives the rock a honeycomb appearance.
A few metres to the south of Honeycomb Rock is the shipwreck of the Tuvalu, a Fijian trader, which ran aground here on its maiden voyage on 11 January, 1967.
A fur seal colony is located about half way along the walk. Fur seal numbers peak during winter when they gather to rest and feed.
Honeycomb Rock walking track is entirely within the privately-owned Glenburn Station so please keep to the marked track and do not interfere with or disturb stock. The track is flat and easily negotiated, following the coastline across farmland. Shallow bays offer good swimming in calm weather.
Please note that there are no toilets, rubbish bins or suitable sources of drinking water and the walking track is closed for lambing during September and October.
Glenburn Station has a range of accommodation options nearby – see Accommodation.
