There are 3 main planting sites that are reasonably accessible and close to Victoria Park, and can be pointed out to you when you pick up the tree:
Wheelchair accessible track below Victoria Park Road – starts behind Visitor Centre and finishes in Tawhairaunui car park opposite the dog park. In non-grassed areas only please to assist with mowing.
New planting site below Tawhairaunui trail: park at the 3 park car park on Victoria Park Road, 100m beyond the main car park and before the car park at the rear of the Visitor Centre and Ranger HQ.
From the 3 park car park, cross the Tawhairaunui trail and follow the mown 4x4 track and the low stone wall to where it meets another 4x4 track.
At this junction, there is a new seat and cleared area for planting. There is plenty of space to plant to the lower left of the seat.
Latters Spur Track
Walking track starts from the main car park, heads south just under the main Victoria Park spur on the Bowenvale Valley side. The planting area is below Latters Spur track in amongst the new area of plantings (children’s Arbor Day plantings) behind the 19th memorial.
Bush Head Restoration Area
Access off the Summit Road. Turn left at the Sign of the Kiwi, drive approx 3kms east to the layby in the saddle between the two conifer knolls of Scotts Reserve.
The planting area is below the road, across a stile and along the mountain bike track to the north in the fenced-off restoration area.
