Bush Walking

Katikati is situated in the rolling foothills of the Kaimai Mamaku National Park. The Kaimai Ranges run the length of the Western Bay of Plenty and dominate the skyline as far as the eye can see.

Walks range from between one and five hour return and are suitable for people with a reasonable level of fitness. There are many wonderful walks through the Kaimai Mamaku National Park.

If you wish to spend the day bush walking we can pack a lunch for you. If planning to walk in the National Park, remember to bring warm and water proof clothing with sturdy footwear. The climate in the mountains can be quite changeable and it is good to be prepared for your enjoyment and comfort.

For those wanting less strenuous bush walking there are some great walks including the Historic Karangahake Gorge near Waihi and the Bowentown Headland and early Maori Pa site with excellent views of the harbour entrance and across the Western Bay of Plenty to the mountains and turn around and look right along the Waihi Beach and beyond to the start of the Coromandal Peninsula.
