Redwood is a suburb located in Christchurch, New Zealand which includes the sub-division of Redwood Springs. The suburb was first named Styx but renamed following a popular vote of local residents in the 1960s after a large Sequoia redwood tree still standing in Prestons Road. The original forest cover was Totara and Kahikatea. Redwood has its own community radio station called Good Music FM 107.5 (formerly known as Radio Redwood).

Wind up the Hooker Valley past alpine streams and glaciers in the shadow of Aoraki/Mount Cook. Enjoy views of the Mueller Glacier, Hooker Lake and Aoraki/Mount Cook.
The track leads through the sacred Tōpuni area of the Hooker Valley, which has special significance and values to Ngāi Tahu iwi, towards Aoraki/Mount Cook.
From the first of three swing bridges along the way, enjoy the views over the Mueller Lake and listen for the rumbling of avalanches from the distant Mount Sefton. Try to spot them before they crash into the Mueller Glacier below.
After crossing the Hooker River, the track goes between old moraine ridges and humps. From the second swing bridge, the vegetation changes to more open tussock and a wider valley floor. A third swing bridge leads to the East Hooker and the source of the Hooker River.
The track ends with an amazing view over the iceberg-speckled Hooker Lake and up to majestic Aoraki/Mount Cook and the Southern Alps/Kā Tiritiri o te Moana.
Return on the same track, enjoying more views down valley and across to the Sealy Range.
Low fitness levels are required for this 3 hour, 10km return track.
We offer specialities from German butchers like sausages, meat loaf and other specialities like Black Forest ham.

To give the perfect European flavour we offer imported cheese from The Netherlands (like Gouda, Leerdam and other specialities), Spain, France, Switzerland and Italy as well as imported pantry goods (like mustards, dumplings, pickles and much more).
But this would be nothing without real German sourdough bread, pretzels and bread rolls.
