It's Thursday evening lates at the maunga! Come and join one of our passionate and knowledgeable guides on a special 30-40 minute highlights tour of this ambitious conservation project. Meet at the foot of a mature northern rata tree (located opposite the tower on the rata track) and join your guide on a short walk within the heart of the southern enclosure. Your guide will identify some of the local flora and fauna and share stories about the conservation work of Sanctuary Mountain® Maungatautari.
After your tour, continue to take in the majesty of our indigenous forest and try to spot the numerous bird species which make the maunga - mountain their home. Spend time in the clearing where kākā like to hang out and take an optional walk up the viewing tower for a unique perspective of the forest canopy from above.
