RFI New Zealand (North Island) (Paul Dodd)

Hi Paul & Ruth,

It is a bit out of the way from Hamilton but the Hopuruahine River, beside
the Waikaremoana Rd just before you get to Lake Waikaremoana is a good spot
for Blue Duck. This is the only place I’ve seen Blue Duck while still in
the car – usually it takes a fair amount of walking to get onto them. The
road is very slow & winding after Murupara so reaching this spot in Te
Urawera NP would probably require an overnight stop. Spectacular scenery,
particularly around the lake, make the drive worthwhile.
