Just a quick visit walking all their tracks. Have seen a lot of better places and a little disappointing.

Lovely spot to visit. Not particularly big though one hour is about enough to walk through it. Lots of narrow tracks underneath trees which are quite refreshing.

We didn't know what to expect when we visited this sanctuary. Even in Winter the trees and bush was tranquil and inviting. Hens and roosters wandering free over nearly the whole estate. The lake settings were also unique and peaceful. This can be enjoyed by all the family and friend's, as it is an easy walk, with much to admire. The bird life is quite prolific too with Tui, Kereru, Pheasant, (and above chickens) just to mention a few.

Always gorgeous, a lovely place for a picnic or a walk with friends or family, sometimes can be extremely busy, so would recommend going earlier in the day.
