Point Bush Ecosanctuary is a unique haven

A conservation project to allow our native birdlife and flora to flourish in South Canterbury, New Zealand. The 90-hectare forest is home to wild kererū, pīwakawaka, tūī and kārearea, who are now frequently seen at Point Bush as native forest has been protected and enhanced over the past 30 years. 

Our vision for the future is to create a predator-proof fenced Ecosanctuary, with a goal of securing the area for more native bird species to make their home here and to regenerate more of the land into native forest. Point Bush Ecosanctuary is a community trust, with free public access at all times throughout the year.

When you visit you can make use of our extensive public walking and mountain biking trails. We are a non-profit and all donations and proceeds go directly back into our conservation projects!

Over the coming year our focus is to complete the Ecosanctuary predator-proof fence which will surround the 90-hectare forest completely.


Head to Waimate for a few days before or after Conference - our Rotarians would love to show you about!
