Pitt Island, Chatham Islands, New Zealand
Short loop walks in Dept of Conservation reserve
Caravan Bush is a Dept of Conservation reserve, and a short way in there is a DoC hut and picnic tables. The loop walks go through bush that is inhabited by rare Chatham Island birds including the Chathams Island Tomtit, Tui and Warbler. There are also Petrel burrows in a protected area, which should not be approached.
The tracks are roughly marked with hand-written labels on plastic marker triangles. The routes shown are relatively flat and easy. There are more loop tracks in the bush, some of which are a lot steeper.
You can arrive at Pitt Island by sea or by plane. Either way, you will usually be part of a tour party and be met by a guide who will take you to the start of the bush walk off Glory Road. There is no commercial or hire transport on the island.
