Russell Nature Walks in Russell

Enjoy a relaxed, informative walk in a Private Forest and Kiwi Conservation Area with your friendly, qualified guides: Lisette and Eion. Russell Nature Walks is one of few places in New Zealand where two rare birds - Kiwi and North Island Weka - can be seen in the wild.

Come for a walk with us to learn more about our native forest, the creatures that live within it and the conservation challenges they face. You will encounter New Zealand birds in their natural habitat, plus fascinating insects and plants.

Our walks are suitable for most fitness levels and last about 2 hours. We keep our groups small and personal so there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and enjoy the peace of the forest. $15 from every ticket sold goes contributes directly to our conservation project for kiwi, weka and other birds.

Join us for our fun and informative 'Ecology Walk' or the 'Night Walk'.......or both.

  • It was a great night walk with a lot of plants, birds, fish, insects and highly informed and enthusiastic guide. A track easy to do up and down so made not to disturb the Kiwis. I would do it again tomorrow 5

  • Very informative and hands-on walks through a well preserved domain tended by local preservation specialists. Our guide Lisette was exceptionally helpful and welcoming, and a font of knowledge about the local flora and fauna and the ongoing conservation efforts. Visits are accessible to walkers of any level. A very nice highlight deep in the Northlands for nature enthusiasts! 5

  • Was fortunate enough to see a kiwi. Certainly needs to be a small group, as ours was, so as to ensure minimal noise. Very special experience and the guide is extremely knowledgeable. 5

  • We're very happy you enjoyed our walk and seeing a kiwi. We keep our groups small for the very reason you identified. Thanks for your feedback. Eion & Lisette

  • As nature lovers myself and my fiancee found this nature walk fantastic even though we didn't manage to see a kiwi. We heard one up close which was really exciting and got to say loads of other wildlife like wetas, spiders, moreporks, wekas, glow-worms and silver ferns. The wild kawa-kawa tea was delicious. Eion was very knowledgeable, friendly and good company. Would recommend to anybody as a very different experience 5

  • Thanks Stewart. I'm pleased you both enjoyed our Night Walk. It was a pleasure to take you out to see some of NZ's night life. Thanks for the recommendation, and I hope the rest of you holiday was just as good.

  • My son and myself very much enjoyed the nature walk looking for the Kiwi. We found it to be informative, interesting, and our guide Eion was not only very knowledgeable about the local wildlife, Entomology and Flora of the bush, he also made it a lot of fun with his humour. Although we didn't get to see a Kiwi, we would love to go back sometime to do another walk with Eion. Many thanks Eion. 5
