A wonderful bush experience awaits you behind the historic Main house at Bushy Park. The Trails offer annointated descriptions of many NZ bush plants and features a very special massive historic tree. You can spend an hour or an entire day depending on your schedule. It;s also a great location for weddings!

Just a beautiful drive, not far from Whanganui and when you get there it is a very special spot for walks, a delicious scone and cup of tea, bush walks and wildlife. Have not stayed there but it looks a great place to stay for a night or two.

Not related to Bushy Park near Epson. If you are interested in ancient woodlands, go. Have no knowledge of trees but you learn a lot on the walk round the small forest, an easy 40 minutes.

To visit the giant 1000 year old rata tree with a girth of 11m always give me shivers down my back - if this thing could talk it would be so great.
