Tutakakahikura Scenic Reserve

Tutakakahikura Scenic Reserve

Banks Peninsula


Time: 1 hr

From Akaroa, take the Akaroa Lighthouse Road for about 7 km. Turn left onto Flea Bay Road - the reserve is signposted about 1 km from the turn-off.

These roads are steep, narrow, gravel roads suitable for 4 wheel-drive vehicles.

Tutakakahikura Scenic Reserve is a narrow stand of remnant red beech/tawairaunui forest, in a steep gully.

Red beech has a very limited distribution on Banks Peninsula, making this small reserve a significant regional feature.
