Keen to get back to nature within New Zealand’s privately owned largest wetland ecosystem? Welcome to the Te Nohoaka o Tukiauau - the Sinclair Wetlands, an internationally recognised nature haven near Waihola. Park your campervan or set up in a cosy tent and stay a while in the Sinclair Wetlands Campsite. Be sure to secure your spot promptly, as space is limited and operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Explore the easy walking tracks, such as the tranquil Pond Loop or the paths to Lonely Island and Ram Island. Managed by a charitable trust, visitors can immerse themselves in the 315-hectares of tranquillity, where conservation, recreation, and education connect. Keen to get your hands dirty and support this important conservation effort? Learn more about volunteering at the wetlands.
