“An easy walk through a redwood grove with beautiful views and information panels along the way.”
Hamuranā is famous for its beautiful, crystal-clear, freshwater springs. The water, once above ground, flows into Lake Rotorua. Part of the Hamuranā Recreation Reserve was once a pa site (village) and home to Ngāti Rangiwewehi who still live in the area and are a partner in management of the reserve. The waters of the springs are a wildlife sanctuary and play host to many bird species, including scaup and the endangered dabchick. The springs are a major source of water supply for the Hamuranā and Ngongotaha areas.
This 800m track is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. An easy, streamside walk through a redwood grove with beautiful views throughout and extensive interpretation along the way. The Yns Fraser walkway provides an alternate route to the head of the springs. You can see the source of the Hamuranā Springs’ crystal-clear water from a viewing platform just before you make a choice to either return on the same track or cross the footbridges, walking along the gravel track to the car park to make a circuit.
Not free! $18 park entry for adults.
