Rimutaka Forest Park
  Bush Cabins for Hire!  

Five bush cabins are available for hire. ($8 per adult)

These are run by the department of conservation and more information can be obtained from the visitor's centre in the park.

Four of the five cabins sleep 8 people, the other one sleeps 16.


this keen walker kindly let me take this picture of her and her two dogs

Dogs

You may bring your dogs here, however they must be on a lead. The many short tracks in the park make for an enjoyable walk for both owners and their dogs, but don't forget your dogs lead!


Wildlife

Unfortunately, with a park of this size, there is not enough room here to list all the birds, animals and trees, however information on this is available from the park's shop, or on the big boards in the little information hut at the end carpark. You may also notice along some tracks there are little information stands.


Swimming

There are a few good places to swim at the park. Safe swimming holes can be found at the end of Orongorongo Track, there is one off the recreational area next to the second to last parking area (on your left going in), although it may take some finding, and there are many great spots for wading also.


Camping

Camping grounds are available in Rimutaka Forest Park. When I asked, it was $4 per night however it would pay to double check this with the shop.


Hazards

An emergency phone is available outside the shop. If you think there are any safety hazards in a conservation area, call Safety Watch or the nearest Department of Conservation office.
