A mysterious Pohutukawa tree hangs above the large Glow Worm grotto and waterfall all hidden in a beautiful piece of coastal native forest.

 The Ohiwa Glow Worms are a 'must do' activity for all the family. It's a lovely walk through the Ohiwa Nature Trail and great experience for kids who have not seen glow worms before.

This makes for a magical walk that will be the highlight of your night or day, or just walk through the bush and check out the Ohiwa Nature Trail.

The Ohiwa Nature Trail is a superb example of coastal native trees and shrubs. Thriving with lots of new seedling plants and a very large number of bird life.

These birds include Tui, Fantails, Silvereye, Kereru (woodpigeon), Shining cuckooss, Pukeko, Weka and many others.
