Trek the 1 hour Slip Track or 2 hour Puketawa Track through our protected private rainforest to see amazing New Zealand bush, hear and see our numerous native birds and enjoy stunning views of the mountain and surrounding land.

Your walk begins on a farm track, before taking you on a zig-zagging, 220 metre ascent through the native rainforest. On the flats above the forest, the panoramic views are stunning, and include Mt Ruapehu, the hidden Otiranui Lake and its resident native wading birds and a mysterious Maori carving (guided only.) To return, you'll descend under a cliff of shell rock, before dropping back into the forest. Stop for lunch or a snack at the picnic site, and enjoy the special 'kiwi loo.'
