Otari Eco Trek - Half Day. This Eco Trek is a Half Day tour of Wellington's extraordinary natural flora and fauna. The tour departs from central Wellington and we travel past some of the city’s most famous icons on our way to Otari Wiltons Bush. The Trek starts at the Waharoa (Maori for entrance) and we head through the Fernery and examine some of the undergrowth . We then head down to the creek, all the while looking out for the Native birds the frequent the area. Including Kereru, Tui, Kaka, Kakariki and Karearea to name a few. At the creek we can spot Tuna (long finned Eel) before heading up to the highlight of the trek; a Rimu tree estimated to be over 800 years old. From there we head back up to the Canopy Walkway where we can see the trees as the birds see them. Finally we get back into the vehicle and stop at the Stellin Memorial Lookout for fabulous views over the Downtown area & Harbour before returning to the City.
