Our host Hugh Wilson has invited CHS Members to explore this 1250 hectare reserve in the southeastern corner of Banks Peninsula. The reserve takes in most of the Otanerito and Stony Bay Valleys, and the head of Sleepy Bay Valley; it ranges from the 806m subalpine summit of Taraterehu/ Stony Bay Peak down to almost sea level at Otanerito Homestead. For those who wish there will be time to enjoy a good walk around the reserve (bring sensible shoes). Read more about Hinewai Reserve
