Enjoy a walk through the stunning forest trails at Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari.
Get your walking shoes on to enjoy a stroll along the well-maintained trails at Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari.
This protected ecosystem has one of the largest pest-proof fences in the world to allow New Zealand's most vulnerable and endangered wildlife to survive.
By visiting, not only will you enjoy the beautiful forest and bird song but you will be helping to protect this area for future generations with all proceeds going back into the conservation of this environment.
Feeding stations are set up along the way with seating available for those who are hoping to see some of the resident birds such as hihi (stitch bird), korimako (bellbird), pītoitoi (North Island robin) and kākā (cheeky forest parrot).
Our Visitor Centre, Manu Tioriori is open daily from 9am to 4pm with toilet facilities, information, refreshments and souvenirs available for purchase.
This is a family-friendly day out that is suitable for most people including pushchairs and some wheelchairs (please contact for accessibility details). Be sure to check out the fantastic treetop views from the 16-meter high observation tower too!
