the home of New Zealand's largest Mallard.
- Coast along for twelve kilometres or so.
- Catch a snooker game in the valley.
- Follow the main track until you see a sign on the left marking the
turn-off for the five mile loop track.
- Turn left down this track.
- Shortly you'll come across two large beech trees on the left of the track.
The Piwakawaka box is in a nook round the right side of the right tree. If you
come to a bridge you have gone too far.
- Carry on along the track.
- Just before you get to the sign for the middle ridge turn-off, spy a
lookout up to the left with an interpretive sign.
- From this sign take six or seven steps back down the track.
- The kiwi-pukupuku is behind a small rock in a nook just over the edge of
the path. This box location is very visible from the track below. Rehide
carefully and double-check that it is well hidden by popping down to the lower
track and looking back up.
- To get back, continue along the track taking either the middle ridge or
five mile loop track.
- There is much scope for adding on boxes to this series so come prepared!
This is a popular area so please be discrete and wait for others to move along
before finding and rehiding the boxes.
Please email us if the boxes needs
