Ruakokoputuna    Martinborough's Magic Valley

Haurangi Forest: Guided Walks

Geoff Wilkinson and his wife Sue have lived at the head of the Ruakokoputuna valley for many years and Geoff’s knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area is unsurpassed. Their 4000 acre block borders the 50,000 acre Aorangi Forest Park which is one of only a few designated recreational hunting areas in New Zealand. If you twist his arm Geoff will take you to explore the old timber mill workings on his land, or on well maintained tracks through dense mountain beech forest to one of his well-equipped lodges. There you can sit and watch deer grazing and look out over Cook Strait to the snow capped peaks of the South Island.
