Te Waoku Kahikatea is located at 303 Radcliffe Road, Marshlands.
There is on-site and street car parking available.
Dogs must be leashed in the reserve at all times in order to protect native wildlife.
This reserve was once farmland but has been transformed into eight hectares of a beautiful native forest and natural waterways.
Various habitats for wildlife such as lizards, birds and fish have been incorporated into the design, and former farm sheds converted into an open-air classroom for people to come and learn about waterways health and local biodiversity.
A two-kilometre walking track meanders through the reserve and into the rongoā (traditional Māori medicine) gardens before looping back to the car park.
Help The Styx Living Laboratory Trust to monitor waterway health and the wildlife in it.
