The maori "pipi walk" was a food trail running down the ridge to the shoreline of the mangrove estuary. Here the Maori sourced supplies of local seafood. This walk is a unique native bush experience with tall kauri and totara trees, nikau palms, tuis, tiwakawaka and Kereru (native wood pigeon).

The tracks are in terrific condition and provide an easy walk for day visitors. Start or end the day with a great coffee from a village café. Alternatively put together a picnic from one of our owner operated bakeries or gourmet delicatessens.

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO KAURI DIE BACK TRACKS FROM LITTLE SHOAL BAY JUNCTION BACK UP TO HINEMOA STREET ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED AND WILL REOPEN AT THE END OF JUNE. ALL OTHER LEROYS BUSH TRACKS ARE OPEN.
