Walk through the bush Tent Sites to the Rain Forest bush line and you’ll find…..
Track : Quartz Mine Site – 3 hours return trip, Take a beautiful Rain Forest bush walk then zig-zag up the abandoned Battery Road to the site of a historic Quartz Mine where quartz was crushed for its gold content. Meander your way through pristine NZ Native bush to where miners spent their days in search of gold, now days a quite spot to relax as the surrounding bush re-claims the area.
Track : Glow Worm Waterfall – 40 mins return trip, again a spectacular NZ Native bush walk to a very photogenic waterfall, walk amongst ferns, pungas and under towering Totara and 500 year old Rimu to our most photogenic waterfall. Spot the Fantails (Pīwakawaka) and Tomtits (Ngirungiru) as they flit around the bush searching for bugs.
All this is free for Jacksons Retreat guest use.
