The history of Travis Wetlands

Travis Wetlands was a key mahinga kai (food gathering) area used by Māori tribes from about 900AD to 1948.

Things to look out for

Along the way, keep an eye out for native bird life, mahinga kai insects and webs, native plants and information about the area’s history.

For tamariki who are into bugs, take the time to find and examine the webs - they’re amazing!
