This is one of Wellington's best attractions. It is really easy to get to, it is free, and it has walkways and tracks of varying difficulty to suit all visitors. There is a great range of native plants here, and if you are observant, you will almost certainly spot native birds and insects. It is also a curated, living native plant museum with small areas planted with a wide range of native species, including some rare plants. One of the features is a canopy walkway that crosses a deep gully next to the information centre off Wilton Road. You just have to stroll along, and suddenly you are at tree top height, looking out over the forest canopy. There is a popular picnic area in the bottom of the valley, which is sheltered from wind and has a small stream running through it. The picnic area has coin-operated barbeques for those who would like to cook some lunch.
