Bookings & cost

The Puketawa Track & Slip Track are now temporarily CLOSED. The will re-open in late August 2019.


Bookings are not required for the Puketawa Track or Slip Track, but you must phone or test Michélé on 021 2113332 to let he know you’re intending to do the walk. You don’t have to wait for a reply & will only receive one if numbers of walkers are too high or the track has to suddenly close for any reason. If you wish to bring a group & bring a dog with you or extend the walk to the Maori Pau on the top, please contact Michélé (details below).

Charge:  A donation or Koha (suggested minimum of $5 per person) for entrance to both tracks. This is not obligatory but is very welcome. It will enable us to continue to keep our tracks open to the public & continue with the conservation work.

If you can do the Tongariro Crossing you can do this! Walkers undertake this track at entirely their own risk. No camping, fires or dogs (without talking to Michélé first.)
