Many wooden bridges recrossing the stream.

 A little History... Brandon's Rock is named after
Mr Alfred de Bathe Brandon (1809-1886) a prominent settler who arrived in Wellington in 1840 and set up a legal practice.
Brandon was also the first Member of Paliament for Wgtn Country area and is also commemorated in Brandon Street,
in Central Wellington. Brandon's land section 12 Harbour District, and the adjoining property to the north, were the subject of two unsuccessful attempts to mine gold, in 1870 and 1883.
Brandon's Rock is also known as Omega Trig (its survey name)
& nicknamed Black Rock. Height 260m. The peak of the Papaparangi Range. 'Papaparangi' means folding hills - "Paparangi' is a European corruption.

 The number of used sparklers I have found left sticking out
of the ground ready to impale a running dogs paws etc...(or eye!)
 It's all fun and games until somebodies Doggie gets hurt !
Have a care people !
