Important Information

  • Wheelchair accessibility is limited for the 'bush walk' - exit into the forest is via stairs. Viewing of the waka (canoe) is from a platform and you can go a short distance into the forest to view the old pā (village) and see the sacred spring below the forest. Unfortunately, you will not see the glow worms. (Note: there is some uneven surfaces). It is recommended you wear flat walking shoes and comfortable clothes, including a jacket during the winter months, we encourage you dress for the weather
