Te Puna Quarry Park
The park is open every day during daylight hours. If the main gates are closed, the park is still open to pedestrians and cars can be parked outside the gates.
Admission is free but donations are welcome and needed.
The park is situated at the end of Quarry Road (length 1 km, which runs off State Highway 2, 15km west of Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty, North Island of New Zealand.
Park Guides showing the walking tracks are available at the Information Kiosk at the Park entrance.
Dogs are allowed to visit the park with their owners, but they must be kept on a lead at all times and owners should be prepared to remove any doggy doos. PLEASE BE AWARE - poison bait for rabbits is quite often laid around the park. It is not laid by the tracks but could be nearby. This is a VERY GOOD REASON TO HAVE YOUR DOG ON A LEAD.
RABBIT POISON CAN BE FATAL TO DOGS!
The circular track takes about 45 minutes to walk, but if you like exploring you could spend twice as long and still not see it all. We recommend stout footwear be worn. Only the lower grass lawns are wheelchair accessable at the present time.
