When visiting Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari make sure you check your gear before you leave.
Check – your gear for pests such as rodents and insects

Close – ensure your gear is zipped up (no open bags)
When you arrive, you will be encouraged to recheck your gear and use cleaning stations.

Foot brushes are located near the visitors centre and a cleaning station by the entry gate before entering the Te Tūī e Tāne southern enclosure. Follow the instructions at the station. Pay particular attention if you have recently been tramping or hunting. Street shoes should be brushed well and cleaned by standing on the foot pad at the station.
