Far North District Council

Puketi Nature Trail


This walk provides a good experience if you are wanting to learn more about New Zealand's native plants, as many of the plants along the way are named.

If you go walking in the evening, you may be treated to a display from the local glow-worms when you get to the first of the track's boardwalks.

The lower part of the track has an impressive stand of mature kahikatea as well as a diverse range of mosses and epiphytes. At the furthest point of the loop track, take time at the viewing platform to enjoy the grove of mature kauri trees.
