Sanctuary Mountain

Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari is a world class conservation project which aims to continue the species re-introductions and breeding programmes to create biodiversity in a sound ecological environment with a 16 metre high forest canopy viewing tower, a 600 year old rata and flourishing native species.

There are self-guided walks or tours to explore the sanctuary. It is surrounded by one of the world’s longest pest-proof fences, Sanctuary Mountain’s ancient forest offers a sanctuary for populations of many of our most endangered species such as birds, skinks, geckos, frogs, bats, and insects.
