Maungatautari Mountain Reserve & Walking Tracks

Maungatautari Mountain Reserve & Walking Tracks


Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari is an exciting place to visit – with 47kms of predator proof fence enclosing 3400 hectares in a sea of pastureland, it is the largest ecological island on mainland New Zealand. 

With the eradication of mammalian predators largely complete, native bird populations are being re-introduced and trees and ferns are able to grow uninhibited.   This provides for a surprising new environment as the balance of species develops. 

Come and experience our special mountain. 

Guided tours now available

We are pleased to introduce our range of guided tours, from an introduction to our project to a full-day walk over the mountain. Find out more
