The Sound of Bird Song on Lake Tutira & Tutira Walkway

Lake Tutira, Napier, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
Lake Tutira, Napier
Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Lake Tutira and the Tutira Recreation Reserve are located about 50 kilometres north of Napier, in the Hawkes Bay region of New Zealand.

Lake Tutira is an idyllic picnicking and camping spot fringed by weeping willows. It was declared a bird sanctuary at the instigation of farmer/author/ornithologist William Herbert Guthrie-Smith (1861 - 1940) who farmed neighbouring Tutira Station.

There is good swimming in the lake, and excellent trout fishing where a stream flows into its northern reaches.

Tutira Campsite

The Tutira Campsite rests on the southern end of the freshwater lake. Tutira Campsite is a conservation campsite, managed by the Department of Conservation. Some things to remember include:

  • Dogs are not permitted
  • No motorboats are permitted on the lake
  • Do not enter the water if signs advise of toxic algae bloom
  • Do not light any fires
  • Take your rubbish away with you

Tutira Walkway

The Tutira Walkway, steep in places, passes through Tutira Station and the adjoining Lake Tutira Domain.

There are splendid views of coastal Hawke's Bay from Table Mountain Trig.

Allow five hours for the full round trip of nine kilometres.
