Do I need to book/purchase tickets in advance?

Tickets for the Treewalk can be purchased online before you arrive and you can then proceed straight to the Treewalk.

Purchasing in advance is not required for the Treewalk as tickets are always available onsite up to our last entry time. However, for Altitude, advance booking is required as tours depart at specific times and have a maximum capacity.

Can children and infants Treewalk?

Good news ! Our toddler and baby strollers are back and available  for use, with COVID clean measures in place. Please note, for the infant strollers, you will need your own baby capsule and it MUST be able to fit securely into our stroller. Please be assured the strollers are being thoroughly cleaned between use.


Children cannot be carried on shoulders, in front or back carriers or pushed in prams on the Treewalk as this presents a safety issue and is our policy. All participants on the Treewalk must be able to walk the entire 700 metres unaided.

However, we do have several baby strollers with mounted capsules available for your use, which can be used by an infant 2-10 kg and 40-70 cm in length. Two people must operate these strollers (front and back), but our team can assist if you’re travelling solo. These are available on a first come, first served basis and are free of charge as part of your Treewalk admission.

We also have one stroller that can fit your own baby capsule and this can be operated by one person and is also available on a first come, first served basis and are free of charge as part of your Treewalk admission.

Are dogs allowed on the Treewalk ?

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on Treewalk or Altitude as there are many moving parts, which pose a risk to the dogs paws. Also, not everyone is a dog person, so we need to respect the comfort of other guests too. However, the forest is dog-friendly (dogs must be on leashes in most areas) so one person could stay with the dog while others in a group participate in the Treewalk or Altitude walk. There is also a dog park opposite the Treewalk where you can run dogs off leash.

Do you sell gift vouchers?

We sure do! Gift vouchers can be purchased online in a variety of denominations and are issued as e-tickets to either the purchaser or directly to the recipient. Please note that gift vouchers are only available for purchase online through our website and are not available for purchase at the i-SITE’s.

COVID-19 Framework & Vaccine Pass Announcement -

Kia Ora, Treewalk whānau,

Further to the New Zealand Government announcements and policies around the COVID-19 framework, Redwoods Treewalk and Redwoods Altitude will be moving to the COVID-19 Protection Framework, a.k.a. the traffic light system from Friday 03 December 2021. 

Vaccine passes will be required to experience our activities under any of the traffic light levels and staff will be verifying your pass, with the possibility of requesting identification. You are required to have both doses (or an approved exemption) before you are eligible for a vaccine pass.

This decision has not been made lightly. We consulted with our staff and considered the increasing operational restrictions (possible closures) through the traffic light levels, as well as guests on site and the close proximity of our team and guests.

Our priority is to safeguard our guests and team alike and we appreciate your understanding.

We're looking forward to welcoming you to the forest this summer.
Kia Ora!

We have something new and exciting coming to the Treewalk and you'll be able to experience this new addition this summer!

However, there will be some disruption to our business on the days and hours below, but we're still open for business, although there will be safeguarding measures and diversions in place during this time.

- Tuesday 23 - Friday 26 Nov 2021 (daytime only).
- Monday 29 Nov - Friday 03 Dec 2021 (day & night).

We appreciate your understanding.

Stayed tuned for further updates!

- Treewalk Team.

  • Coolest place ever! We went at dusk so did half of the walk in the day time and the other half in the semi dark when all the night lights were on! Was such a beautiful walk and loved every moment! The staff were super informative and nice. I will definitely be back in the future!

  • The Redwood Forest is just stunning... The lights are just incredible and it is such a beautiful thing to be walking so high in the trees. We also went back the next day and walked around the forest - still gorgeous. Would definitely recommend.

  • This is a highlight in Rotorua. Super friendly and helpful staff. Amazing walk high through the trees. Take the high road if you dare! It's worth it.

  • The Redwoods Altitude tree walk is beyond amazing! It was the highlight of our tiki tour of the North Island, and if you’re a wee bit terrified of heights, it was life changing. We felt so safe while being challenged well beyond our comfort zones. The guides are great, very encouraging.
