Nature Walks & Sculpture Trail

Self guided nature walks are available around Lochmara. We have a network of educational signs with the history of the region and interesting information on native plants, geology, conservation projects and much more on our character filled property of 11 acres. There is also interaction with endangered species breeding programs, an abundance of bird life, a bee display, and of course, wonderful views at every point.

We also have a 3.5km walking track to the Queen Charlotte Track. This takes approx. 1 hour each way. Once at the top you can walk onto the Onahau Lookout which affords 360 degree panaramic views of both the Queen Charlotte Sound and the Kenepuru Sound. The return walking time is approx 3.5 hours.

Enjoy a meander along our paths to view the quirky sculptures.

The sculpture trail is an entertaining and engaging exploration across 11 acres of ‘living gallery’.

Tucked in among the bush, overlooking the bay, in our gardens, and in every nook and cranny is sculpture to surprise and delight. The trail incorporates sculpture in a variety of mediums from living trees to stone, wood and mixed media. The works range from quirky pieces to sculptures by renowned New Zealand and international artists.
