Lake Opouahi covers 6.27 hectares and is surrounded by a 3.2km predator-proof fence. The area is the site of the Pan Pac Kiwi Crèche which opened in March 2008. Since then 2000 students have had a kiwi experience here. The crèche is administered by ECOED. ECOED’s mission is to integrate outdoor education, environmental education and conservation in Hawke’s Bay. A 30 minute loop walk through regenerating native bush skirts picturesque Lake Opouahi.
