Mt Sunday Bivvy | Mt Richmond Forest Park
An almost tiny bivvy regularly visited by Outward Bound students, and other daytrippers, but few people actually stay.
Quite a climb, 1200 m actually, unrelenting though not ever “steep”. That makes the views from Mount Riley and Sunday spectacular, as you take in the Wairau valley, Tapuae-o-Uenuku, Blenheim, Cook Strait, the Marlborough Sounds, and much of the eastern portion of Mount Richmond Forest Park.
