This walk through a botanic garden is suitable for buggies.
Moturau Moana translates as “islands of bush above the sea” and is an area of mostly native garden gifted to the people of New Zealand by the late Noeline Baker. Miss Baker collected the plants from Stewart Island/Rakiura and on field trips to the South Island. Today these gardens provide a peaceful setting with views over Halfmoon Bay.
1 hr return from the Rakiura National Park Visitor Centre
At the waterfront, turn left into Horseshoe Bay Road and continue over Mill Creek and past Butterfield Beach until the Bragg Bay turnoff. The entrance to Moturau Moana is a few minutes along this road on the left. Return the same way or take the longer walk round Horseshoe Point.
