Puketi Night Walk
Discover the dark secrets of Puketi Forest, the ancient kauri rainforest (15,000 hectares) close to the Bay of Islands. With over 360 indigenous species of plants, this subtropical rainforest is one of the most diverse in New Zealand. This intimate guided tour (max 6 people) takes you into the forest at twilight where you experience the transition from day to night. Listen to the bird song as the tuis, the fantails and the kukupa settle for the night, while the nocturnal moreporks and kiwi awaken. Feel the draft of the bats flying overhead and discover the creepy and crawly insects that are active at night.
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.

Great night walk and stay at Puketi Heights B&B
We spent two nights at the Puketi Heights B&B. Barbara was the perfect host and the B&B very comfortable, guests even have their own living area and access to a spa pool. Barbara is very friendly and even made us a delicious antipasti platter on short notice. Ian took us on a night walk through the forest which was fantastic. Learnt so much. Highly recommend both the B&B and the night walk.
