Te Kaainga Tawhai forest is a QEII full title covenant, privately owned. We are guardians of ecological health of the forest, undertake ongoing extensive pest control and make TKT accessible to groups, families & individuals who want to learn about the forest ecology, explore wilderness concepts or simply recharge in a beautiful place. We have people stay in our batch who in turn contribute to pest & weed control. TKT is also used as a training & facilitation venue. The forest is mixed beech, podocarp and rata forest with healthy bird life.


A range of volunteers that give their free time to assist with pest control.
Tasman Biodiversity Forum, Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology, Department of Conservation, Landcare Research, Cubs/Scouts, Volunteer Walking Group Leaders, Nelson Botanical Society
