Getting there

Field Reserve is located on SH1 opposite and immediately north of the Kapiti Island Lookout, 1.6km north-east of Paraparaumu and 3km south-west from Waikanae. The reserve is about 4kms from the coastline (Paraparaumu Beach).

There is no parking at the Reserve, and there are no tracks through the Reserve but it is regularly trapped.

The locals

Common bird species found in the reserve include tui, grey warbler, silvereye, NZ pigeon, North Island fantail and morepork.

The three-hectare reserve contains mature kohekohe forest with a mix of  nikau, tawa, mahoe, totara, kahikatea, rata, miro and matai. 


What can you do

The Reserve is trapped for mustelids and other predators, and bird counts are undertaken regularly.
