Don't hibernate this winter! Wrap up warm, grab a torch and explore the REAL Whakatāne Night Life scene with the Whakatāne Kiwi Trust!

Come along and learn about our local kiwi population and the work being done by our amazing volunteers to protect our national icon and other native taonga. If you listen carefully you might even hear the call of kiwi or weka! Birds aren't the only stars of the show though, you'll also discover various plant life, nocturnal creepy-crawlies like spiders and wētā, and incredible glow-in-the-dark fungi!

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!

Directions to the meeting point on Burma Road:

From Whakatāne: Drive over the hill from Whakatāne towards Ōhope. Approximately 400 metres after the turn-off to the cemetery, turn right onto Burma Road. Follow this road past the old landfill site and park in the turning circle at the end of the gravel road.

From Ōhope: Drive over the hill towards Whakatāne. Approximately 800 metres after the turnoff to Kohi Point lookout, turn left onto Burma Road. Follow the road past the old landfill site and park in the turning circle at the end of the gravel road.

Please note that a reasonable level of physical fitness is required as we will be going off the public tracks and this may not be suitable for children under the age of 8. 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 are 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.

If you have any questions regarding the above please contact the Whakatāne Kiwi Trust:

Thanks, we look forward to meeting you all
