This is a quiet, shady area of bush which includes some interesting specimens, an old-fashioned kids playground, some lovely viewpoints and access to the Akaroa cemeteries. I enjoyed an evening walk here and sighted my first ever brown creepers (Mohoua novaeseelandiae) as well as bellbirds, kereru, riroriro, yellow hammers and plenty of other birdlife. Not a huge reserve, but signposting could be better, so recommend photographing the map at the entrance so you can refer to it en route.

Pleasant short walks - main track (suitable to wheelchair/stroller, with a bit of effort) and various side tracks (walking only). A number of specimen trees, including those planted to commemorate events such as the end of WW1 and the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. One option is to go through to some of the old Akaroa cemeteries - Catholic, Anglican and 'Dissenters'. History and exercise in one trip! Children's playground at one of the top entrances, near the start of Onuku Rd.

We had a wonderful walk through the forest and visited the cemeteries. I always feel sad when I realise the dissenters were buried in a different cemetery than others. Back in those days, they didn't have the empathy for people who just couldn't go to war. The prejudice against these people must have been horrendous. Lovely walk though.

This is a beautiful walk in tall trees BUT it is poorly signposteed so it is easy to get lost. At the top are 2 old cemetaries. A real adventure, nature walk!

Close to the town centre, this garden provides a great natural oasis for bush walks through both native bush and introduced trees planted by the early settlers. A place for quiet contemplation and a playground area for children. There are a number of trees planted to commemorate significant historic events and viewing points to look over the harbour.
