The Ecology Trail highlights Tawharanui's precious natural ecology and heritage taking in coastline, wetlands, pasture and native bush. This is a great walk for spotting rare and native species of flora and fauna such as saddleback, kaka, north island robin and maybe a kiwi. Follow the yellow marker posts.
