We are close to Maungatautari mountain..NZs largest bush Reserve...a 47km pest proof fence around the base of the mountain keeps predators out. It is monitored by lots of volunteers and as a result tbe native birds are breeding up well. They have even introduced a few pairs of kiwi hoping to preserve our national icon! A short flight to our property means you may well see some birds here you may not see anywhere else..also there are some bush walks close by.
No smokin inside
