Walking tracks: There are no tracks in the reserve.

Walking tracks: There are no established tracks but access stiles can be found close to the old pioneer cemetery (also worth seeing.) Because of the steep and slippery terrain it is recommended that walkers are accompanied by a guide.

Bushy Park is a lowland rainforest surrounded by a predator-proof fence.
It is home to a range of native species, including hihi, kōkako, kererū, robin, and tīeke (saddleback).
Our vision with the Pukahu Project is to have the Karamu stream in a fit state to support aquatic and terrestrial life thus enabling birds to travel across our region from the Kaweka Ranges to the coast.
Walking Tracks: Four flat, easy walking tracks that vary in length from 20 – 40 minutes return.
Facilities: Picnic table, electric barbeque, plant nursery and visitor’s centre.
The reserve is situated at the end of Waite Rd, approximately 7km north-west of Pirongia in the Waikato.
Kererū, tūī, bellbird, North Island fantail, grey warbler and silvereye.
