National Wetland Centre
The Rotopiko Discovery Trail at the National Wetland Trust has been cleverly designed to be fun for all the family. As you walk around the Lake, you’ll find activity stations with stories about the wetland, as well as simple hands-on activities.
New Zealand was once over 90% wetland and learning more about the cultural and ecological value of this habitat provides a greater understanding of New Zealand’s past and our future. They are vital to managing climate change.
How to get there:
The National Wetland Trust is between Hamilton and Te Awamutu at 4626 Ohaupo Rd, Ohaupo, 3883.
Access is via double wooden gates off SH 3, between McFall and Jary Roads (left hand turn in and out only). Pedestrian access to the reserve is via a sliding gate in the pest-proof fence. No dogs or smoking are permitted inside the reserve.
