Hinewai Night Walk with Paul Newport & Tricia Hewlett.
Please note that Children must be 8 years old or over and accompanied by an adult.
Pack up your byo food and picnic to cook on the barbecue and enjoy some old fashioned hospitality at Otanerito homestead with Tricia and Paul as they open their lovely garden and Art Studio to you for the evening. As it gets dark you will get the chance to walk and meet Hinewai Reserve’s night critters. Take a fully guided torchlight stroll through Hinewai’s Lower Valley Track seeking wētā, moths, spiders, slugs, beetles, fish and other creatures of the night. This is a rare opportunity to explore our native bush in the dark to discover another “world”. A world of activity with plants seen in a different light. A world of shadows, shading and shimmers, overseen by starry skies.
Note this walk will only be run at Covid-19 Alert Level 1.
Duration: 4 hours including BBQ tea, Art Studio Tour and night walk - Walk length 1km.
EASY - Well formed track, easy mostly flat walking.
