408A South Road
Enjoy strolling the walkways and listening to the birdsong of this wetland garden, one of the most established riparian planting schemes in South Taranaki. Once a stock dam, this garden has been fenced off and planted out with a variety of native and exotic trees to increase the habitat for wildlife. This QEII National Trust reserve provides a bush setting for resident fantails, tui, kereru, kingfishers, occasional sightings of quail and rosella as well as many other creatures.
