First time at this new attraction and was very impressed by the walk way and how little it intrudes into the scenery when looking towards the attraction from other parts of the district. Lots of parking space, pleasant helpful staff at the ticket office. Altogether...More

Great cafe (with surprisingly reasonably priced food) and gift shop, but the real attraction is the treetop walk. It's a steep walk up a gravel track to get to the walk, but I think they take you up to the beginning of the treetop path...More

The pricing would be in NZ$'s. So you'd need to do compare to Aus $'s to compare the two... Approx $7mil build cost for these attractions so owners need to ensure an ROI
