We anticipated seeing lush native rainforest and birds, unfortunately this is not what you will see here. The walkway is a novel idea and does put you among the treetops with lovely views of the the nearby lake and surrounding trees. However the bush is...More

Thank you for leaving feedback. Sorry you were disappointed with no birds, it does sometimes depend on the time of day you visit.

Great cafe (with surprisingly reasonably priced food) and gift shop, but the real attraction is the treetop walk. It's a steep walk up a gravel track to get to the walk, but I think they take you up to the beginning of the treetop path...More

It was a blissfully slow day, because there were only three parties on the walkway as I walked. So there was peace and a chance to stand and look. Looking down on bush which I am very familiar with was rather lovely. It is different...More

Thank you for sharing your experience of the Treetop with us. The bush diffidently looks different from above, the Ponga look magnificent from above.

I’m not great with heights but did it anyway, well worth the $32 great value for money. Only 5 minutes off the main highway I would highly recommend popping in and doing this. The views are spectacular with good coffee and food.

Right, so the views are incredible, you can’t deny that. HOWEVER, the price is absolutely disgusting. $64 dollars for the two of us 👎🏻 definitely not worth it. There are so many better walks round the South Island that are free. I understand it costs...More

I really liked this walk although found it a bit expansive for what it was. The views were good and the tower that you climbed but I found the cost a bit steep for what it was.
