Puketi Eco Walk – Tour Description

Intimate guided walk (max 6 people) through Puketi Forest, the ancient kauri rainforest (15,000 hectares) close to the Bay Islands. With over 360 indigenous species of plants, this subtropical rainforest is one of the most diverse in New Zealand. Learn to recognise and name some of the native trees: the mighty kauri, tawa, remu, totara and nikau (New Zealand’s native palm tree) to mention just a few. Listen and maybe see the native birds: tui, fantail, pied tit, fernbird and kukupa. Spot the Northland green gecko and tusked weta.

Experienced guides with a passion for conservation share their stories and knowledge: learn more about the unique flora and fauna. Discover what’s threatening New Zealand’s subtropical rainforests: possums, stoats, ferrets and kauri dieback and what we can do to protect the eco system.

Review on Tripadvisor

We took the 1/2 day trip. Our hosts, Barbara and Ian, were fantastic. Both are long time native New Zealanders. Ian served as our guide, and was extremely knowledgeable and — most importantly, friendly and welcoming. He shared so much more than just the names of the native birds and trees we saw. He shared his enthusiasm for the protection of the kiwi and other indigenous animals and plants. We got so much more out of it than we even expected. I wish we had had the time to also do the 2 hour night walk. That sounded phenomenal! I guess we will have to save that for next time.
