Otanewainuku is a small rhyolitic dome in the western Bay of Plenty. A lookout (constructed by army territorials) provides sweeping views, and the mountain is home to virgin forest and an array of birdlife.
More information on the walk can be found at the DOC Otanewainuku page.
In 2007, four kiwi were released on Otanewainuku by the Otanewainuku Kiwi Trust. You can also sponsor a hectare through the trust.
