FAQ's

– What is the Redwoods Treewalk?
Redwoods Treewalk is Rotorua’s newest Eco-Tourism attraction. Using ecologically friendly engineering, the Treewalk is suspended from 110-year-old majestic redwoods. Featuring a series of suspension bridges and living decks, elevated from 6-metres to 12-metres at its’ highest point. Designed for use without harnesses or protective gear, it is suitable for all ages. The only pre-requisite is that all users must be able to walk the entire 553-metres (please don’t carry children – front and backpacks included).

 

– What is the Redwoods Nightlights?

At dusk, 30 David Trubridge designed lanterns and 40 colour spots and feature lights illuminate Redwoods Treewalk for a totally different and unique nocturnal experience. For further information, visit the Redwoods Nightlights page on our website.

 

– How long is the walk?
The Treewalk is 553-meters long.

 

– How many bridges in total?
There are 23 bridge sections connected to 22 living decks (platforms).

 

– How long does it take to walk?
Visitors can walk at their own pace and take their time to enjoy the unique views from the living decks, however, we do advise Treewalkers to allow up to 30 minutes to complete the walk.

 

– Can everyone Treewalk?
To be able to Treewalk, customers must have a reasonable level of fitness. All Treewalkers must be able to walk unaided, including young children.  Children cannot be carried at any stage along the walk, either in front or back carriers or in an adult’s arms.  There is a maximum weight of 120 kg for any one individual.

 

– What are the opening hours?
Redwoods Treewalk is open every day from 09:00 until 10:30 pm (the last ticket is sold at 10:00 pm) and the Redwoods Nightlights are turned on from 6.00 pm. The only day we’re closed is Christmas Day (25th Dec). Check out our facebook for last minute changes or notices and our Price + Hours page on our website.

 

– Is it open in the rain?

Yes, in fact, the forest ambience and colours are even more stunning in the wet weather, so the treewalk is a very good all weather activity. However, we will not operate the Treewalk in high winds or during thunder/lightning storms.
