Waitutu Track
  the most important forest in the world...

Guided Walk | Freedom Plus | Freedom Walk


Introduction
The Waitutu is an ancient terraced forest rising out of the sea with each level 100,000 years older than the last. It is the largest piece of untouched native bush in New Zealand.
Follow the south coast, sweeping through bush and beach to the historic Port Craig Village, then walk along the old forest tramline and over a series of spectacular viaducts. Explore the stunning Waitutu forest with the option of heading inland by jet boat up the Wairaurahiri River and over mythical Lake Hauroko, where the remains of a Maori princess are said to rest in the clefts of a rock.
