Walking Guide - Hugh Wilson

Ōpātuti Track is a new route formed for the re-designed Banks Peninsula Track. It traverses private land and a wild part of Hinewai Reserve that has not previously been accessible to the general public. Enjoy the magnificent old-growth red beech forest, resident falcons, fast-flowing streams and stunning views. There is a fairly steep upper section, but the time allows for an unhurried ascent and numerous opportunities for having special flora and fauna pointed out. Large areas of Stoney Bay Valley burnt in the big Hinewai fire of July 2011, and the festival concludes with a chance to observe and hear about the spectacular recovery experienced here.
