Broken Hills Puketui

Once a thriving mining town the regenerating bush is now inhabited only by birds and interesting (and harmless) creatures living in the old mine tunnels, waiting for you to discover them.


19km south of Tairua at Hikuai, a small road opposite the turnoff to Pauanui leads you into the Department of Conservation area of the Puketui Valley. Here there are several walks of up to 2 hours duration. There is a beautiful camping spot on the grassy banks of the Tairua River, which also provides cooling waterholes on hot days. A local's favourite.
