Imagine a place where people can learn how important wetlands are, the human benefits they provide and the unique plant and animal communities they support.
Visit Rotopiko Reserve for a pest-free picnic inside the pest-proof fence. Enjoy easy walks, lake views, ancient swamp forest, rare plants and native birds. Try your hand at our family-oriented interactive discovery trail – play Eels and Ladders, Mudfish Scrabble, and try to identify what bird walked across the boardwalk.
This is the flagship project of the National Wetland Trust of NZ with the support of Waipa District Council, Department of Conservation and our primary sponsors: The Waikato River Cleanup Trust, Waikato Catchment Ecological Enhancement Trust.
