Situated at the end of the Brook Valley Road (through the Brook Valley Holiday Park) is the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary’s Visitor Centre is open: Summer hours – daily 10am – 4pm
Winter hours – weekends 10am – 4pm which has information about the local wildlife and an interesting model of the surrounding hills.
From the visitor centre is a very pretty 45 minute return walk through the forest past the historic 19th Century waterworks.
There is a potential swimming hole just below the dam if the weather is warm enough. As the Trust is working towards a preditor free environment, there is an abundance of bird life in the area.
