Monro Beach Walk

Monro Beach Walk

The Monro Beach Walk is a 40 minute flat walk through mostly ancient forest to Monro Beach. Just after the start, you cross a short swing bridge over the Monro Creek and then join up with a whitebaiters’ access road through the forest. Follow this for a few hundred metres, before turning off on the main track to the beach.

The towering rimu and kahikatea trees are a feature, as are the big native fuschia trees (kōtukutuku) along the path. These are easily recognised with their nearly orange trunks. Gnarled rainforest trees, covered in ferns, lichens and moss are ever-present and you may get to see a goblin in front of its den, or even some ‘legs’ hanging down from a tree.

The car park entrance is just past the gate for the Wilderness Lodge Lake Moeraki and there is a toilet there. There are no sandflies on the track.
