Activities at the Rotoiti Nature Recovery Project
Bird and wildlife watching
Trampers on a boardwalk, Lake Rotoiti
The recovery project's beech forest is alive with the sights and sounds of birds. Bellbirds chime a constant chorus, fantails can be seen flitting from tree to tree and increasingly the screech of the kaka can be heard ringing out.
Track & walks
There are a number of walks, of varying lengths, leading off from the campground and weaving through the forest. Walks go past colourful information panels that tell the story of the project and the flora and fauna within it.
The Bellbird Walk is a wheelchair-accessible pathway that takes about 15 minutes. About 45 minutes should be allowed for the Honeydew Walk while the Loop Track goes even further into the forest and takes about an hour and a half. The DOC Nelson Lakes Visitor Centre also has interesting and informative displays on the project.
