Experience Purangi. You can enjoy this walk at your leisure. We ask for a $10 donation per person which goes towards our kiwi project. The Otunahe Scenic Reserve (approx 70 hectares) is a private QEII-covenanted reserve which lies on the farm property of Bob and Karen Schumacher. Both the farm and the reserve are within the much larger predator-controlled area cared for by the East Taranaki Environment Trust (ETET).
The reserve is a wonderful example of mature native forest. The area has a rich biodiversity and is home to many of our native species including fernbird, bellbird, tui, kereru, New Zealand Robin, New Zealand Falcon, whitehead and of course the kiwi. Please note: you won’t see or hear the kiwi because they are nocturnal and shy and they are asleep in their burrows – but you might see footprints, droppings or probe holes in the soil. There are several walking tracks. Otunahe track and Hidden Valley Track which is suitable for children.
