Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary

Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary, a QEII National Trust Protected Open Space native Rainforest Bird Sanctuary for birdsong and bird watching.


At Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary, a unique accommodation in our native rainforest and bird sanctuary, protected by QEII National Trust Covenant, awaken to native bird song.

In our 16 acre hideaway watch and listen to native birds: Tui, Piwakawaka (Fantail), Bellbird, Kereru (Woodpigeon), Waxeye, Pukeko, Grey Warbler, Paradise Duck, and at night listen to the haunting call of the native owl, the Morepork (Ruru). Be enchanted by the majestic Harrier Hawke as it soars. The Kereru swoop above your head, the Fantail flit around you, and the Tui with the white tuft on its neck sings its melody all day long, and the Bell Bird rings its bells across the forest. Spring is heralded by the arrival of the Shining Cuckoo from the Solomon Islands.
