Bush Walk

Bush Walk

The native bush walk contains a number of plant species that are unique to New Zealand - none more so than the silver fern. This fern’s leaves are green on top but silver underneath. It is worn as a symbol on all of New Zealand's National Teams uniforms such as the All Blacks and the Silver Ferns netball team.

Enjoy the tranquil setting of Hells Gate’s native forest walk, keep an ear out for native bird song along the way. The walk takes 45 minutes to an hour. Do not be deterred by rain as the geothermal park is at its best when it is raining (as long as it is not too heavy).
