Claremont Bush Track
A short, but sweet walk, the Claremont Bush tracks allows you to take your time and enjoy the native bush and bird life. Keep an eye out for Bellbirds (Kōpara) and Fantails (Piwakawaka).
Start next to the sign, walk through the macrocarpa plantation and over the footbridge into the bush. The track then moves into a variety of native plants. Claremont Bush has a circular track with a steep climb up one side and a sharp drop on the other. The slope can be slippery in wet weather.
A rare native climbing daisy with a bright yellow flower can sometimes be seen in this bush.
