Hemi Matenga Memorial Park Scenic Reserve

Forest in Waikanae

This 330-hectare reserve overlooking Waikanae contains a large remnant of native kohekohe forest. The reserve rises steeply from 150m to its highest point, Te Au (514m), a steep hike of three to four hours on the Te Au Track. The Kohekohe Walk is also here, an easy 30-minute amble on a well-formed path.
