Otunahe Reserve Walkway


The Otunahe Scenic Reserve is a private reserve that is within the much larger predator-controlled area of 13,000 hectares cared for by the East Taranaki Environment Trust (ETET). The Otunahe Reserve Walkway follows a scenic path through mature native forest rich in biodiversity and main highlights include a 800-1000 year old Rimu Tree.

The area is a national stronghold for Western North Island Brown Kiwi with an estimated 500 pairs in residence and the area is also home to other native species including fernbird, bellbird, tui, kereru, New Zealand Robin, New Zealand falcon, and whitehead.

This walkway is maintained by ETET and donations of $10 per person (under 5s free) fund a predator-controlled environment for kiwi to thrive. Guided day and night walks can be pre-booked. Please remember kiwi are nocturnal and shy but you might see footprints, droppings or holes in the soil.
