" Fantastic experience! We learnt heaps :)
Really glad we booked in to do the Forest Ecology Walk. We learnt heaps of stuff about New Zealand flora and fauna and about the problems facing conservation at the moment. Lisette was incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly!  "

Enjoy a guided walk meandering through a forested valley in a Private Kiwi Conservation Area.  This fun and informative walk is different each time. What we see and hear depends on the time of the day, the weather, the season and what the walking group is most interested in.


  • Find out about native plants and their traditional uses.
  • Walk or sit quietly to see or hear native birds: Weka, Tui, Fantail, Grey Warbler, Fernbird, Kingfisher, and Pipit.
  • Search for Weta, a harmless giant insect.
  • Learn how the creatures of the forest rely on each other.
