Information

150 m return | 10 minutes return

The easiest stroll around Mount Cook Village. Definite highlight is the push button bird song calls in the forest.

Access

The walk starts from the public shelter near the petrol pumps on Bowen Drive.

Track

There’s a few steps as you negotiate the interior of the mountain toatoa and totara forest. The walk can be linked with the Governors Bush Walk.

Flora

This is one of the few areas to still have intact forest.

Fauna

Since it’s tricky to get to know New Zealand bird calls (you have to hear the call AND see the bird AND identify the bird), DoC have made it really easy. Push the button next to the bird to hear their call. A few technical problems every now and then, but the only place in NZ where this feature is on offer.
