Venture into the bush at dusk and discover a new world of sights and sounds!

- Listen for kiwi, ruru and weka.
- Check out the spiders and huge cave wētā
- Look in the stream for native fish like the giant kōkopu
- Hunt for kiwi footprints
- Learn about the work of the Whakatāne Kiwi Trust and what our amazing volunteers are doing to protect kiwi and native taonga (treasures!)

Please be aware that it is very unlikely that you will see a wild kiwi on this walk - they tend to run a mile when they hear a dozen humans coming down the track!

Age guide: 5 to 12 years. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please bring a drink bottle and snacks. Please wear warm clothing, a raincoat (if appropriate), and sturdy, closed-in shoes (no jandals!). Whilst the Trust team will have first aid kits, please bring any personal medication you may require (e.g. asthma inhalers). Finally, don’t forget to wear warm clothing and footwear (e.g. NOT sandals or jandals) and bring a torch, some snacks, a drink and a camera!

Cancellation Policy:
Due to limited ticket numbers, we request all cancellations be made at least 48 hours before the scheduled walk. This gives us the opportunity to fill your space with another member of the public.
Cancellations made within 48 hours or more will be processed with a full refund. Failure to notify via email, text or phone within the 48 hour time period will mean a forfeit of the full amount of the ticket(s) purchased.
In the event of poor weather or unforeseen circumstances, the Whakatāne Kiwi Trust reserves the right to cancel a walk. This will be notified by a phone call to those people who have booked on the walk.
