Te Tūī a Tāne Treasure Hunt

This activity sheet takes you on a multi-choice adventure from the Manu Tioriori visitor centre to the Tower within Te Tūī a Tāne (the southern enclosure) – our showcase site! The answer to each multi choice question can be found along the Rātā track trail on the interpretation boards with the matching title. There are numbers on the map to help you find each sign along the way.
