Overview

Your tour will depart from the visitor centre at 1pm. From here, you will head down the track while listening to your guide tell you about the conservation project and the construction of our predator proof fence. Enter the wetland area through double gates and begin the adventure.

Explore our wetland and learn how 80% of wetlands in the Waikato were drained for agricultural use, and why they need to be restored.
You will learn about our large scale project, vision and the history of Maungatautari. Find out about the importance of the fence and our trapping and monitoring programmes.

Go into the Tuatarium to learn about the history, life cycle and physical characteristics of the tuatara and their journey to Maungatautari. With the assistance of our knowledgeable guides keep a look out for any that maybe basking in the warmth of the afternoon.

Our breeding pair of takahē  may be visible dining on their diet of grasses, once thought to be extinct; these rare birds were rediscovered in 1948.

Finally make your way back to the visitor centre where you can relax and take in the view and utilise our facilities. Here you will find informative displays and information about other tours and events at Sanctuary Mountain®. You can also purchase refreshments and souvenirs, with all proceeds going towards conservation projects on the 'maunga' mountain.
