Kahikatea (white pine) is the dominant feature in these 19 ha of bush, while an impressive stand of nikau palms provide their own unique natural beauty. A picturesque stream and small waterfall are both visible from the White Pine Bush track—sometimes small fish, eels and koura (freshwater crayfish) can be seen.

The best thing about this freedom camping location is the stunning Kahikatea remnant forest that it borders. It's also located right next to the road. But this is also a curse as by being on a hill, this is classic truck engine braking territory. This isn't a quiet or private place to spend the night. I wouldn't stay here again and it's only another 10 minutes up the road to Lake Tutira.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
