Okarito Trig Walks

Native bird watching

Time: 20 mins to 1.5 hours one way

Grade: Moderate (steep climb)

Start: The Strand Car park next to Okarito Schools House  Get Google Maps directions

This walk has got a lot going on for it. After 20 minutes there is a small lookout, but if you continue for another hour further uphill you will arrive at the walk lookout. Stunning and diverse scenery dominate Okarito. Tidal estuaries and lagoons, windswept coastline sea cliffs, lush rain forest and magnificent views of the Southern Alps, Ka Tiritiri o te Moana. Thousands of native birds make this place their home. Spot White Heron (Kotuku) and royal spoonbills.

Our first trip to New Zealand with our one year old baby. Was little bit scare. Used Ezi car rental for car hire. Wonderful experience. Communication was quick and awesome. Customer care responded to all queries efficiently. Got the exact same car what was promised during booking. Car was sparkling clean and smooth to drive. 100% recommended.
