Take a short walk through some of the natural wonders of New Zealand – our bush, our rocks, our volcanic landscapes. Bush City has over 1,400 native plants, some of the oldest rocks in AotearoaAotearoa New Zealand, and harbour views. There are also many seating areas where you can take in the sights and smells of the forest, and perhaps spot a tūī or other bird.
You’ll find family-friendly activities here too – dig for fossils, cross a swing bridge, or enter a cave to discover glow worms, stalactites, and the bones of extinct moa.
