ACTIVITIES & OUTINGS

Spare 30 minutes to walk through this forest right alongside SH1. It is dense with rimu, tōtara and kahikatea, and packed with kererū, tūī and korimako (bellbird). The walk loops in a figure of eight, and includes a memorial to Robert Cunningham Bruce, a conservationist who gifted the district several areas of forest. Bruce Park Scenic Reserve is just 5km south of Hunterville — turn off SH1 onto Aldworth Road. Park on the road and walk through the gate. Once in the bush, follow the trails.
