The Couldrey House Track starts from the pouwhenua (carving) which is at the southern end of the Couldrey House Grounds. The climb to the lookout is reasonably steep but the track is very well maintained. The views of the Puhoi Estuary and Couldrey House are well worth the short climb. Follow the yellow markers.
