Numerous other established tracks throughout bush containing a wonderful array of native and exotic birds and animals including Wallabies, Weka, Tui, Wood Pigeon, Kiwi, Morepork, Rosella and Kookaburra.

    Very tranquil place! We got stranded with our boat at low tide so watch tide if you bring your own vessel as we found where boat floated one day, next day it was dry.
