An ancient, predator free, forest right here in the Waikato, just 30 minutes drive from Cambridge.
An ecological delight – this 3,400 hectare mountain which is protected by a pest proof fence to enable native wildlife to be released.
Visit the projects’ showcase site – the southern enclosure. Enjoy a walk through regenerating forest along wide metalled tracks, climb the 16 metre forest canopy viewing tower, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the hihi (stitchbirds) at their feeders. At night, listen to the kiwi call.
Walking options: One to two hour walks within the southern and northern enclosures. Full day treks to Pukeatua peak, Maungatautari peak, or across the mountain.
Bush walks and guided tours.
Visitor Centre open 7 days a week.
