Hunua Kokako Management Area

The Kokako Management Area is a beautiful area of native bush located at Kohukohunui, the highest point in the Hunua Ranges. To get there, travel to Clevedon, take Kawakawa Bay Road and turn up Ness Valley. Moumoukai Hill Road but stop at the parking area by a locked gate. There are toilets. (On Google maps the address is 201 Moumoukai Hill Road, Hunua.)

Meet there at 10:00 am. You should allow about two hours travel.

Beyond the gate we must travel a further 7 km, in convoy. The walk is about 3 km. The track is excellent with any steeper sections as steps. At the top there is a lookout tower. On the return walk we will make a short side trip to a collection of huts called “The Café”. with more views, maybe some birds and lunch spot.

It's important to let Keith know you're coming so everyoine gets through the locked gate.
