Activities in Peel Forest Park
Tracks and walks
Peel Forest track
A wide variety of short and long tracks extend into the park. Your choices range from a gentle stroll around Dennistoun Bush or a more adventurous tramp up Little Mt Peel/Hautakerekere. All tracks are signposted and well marked. Any tracks above the bushline should be considered a tramping track.
The Rangitata River is one of New Zealand’s best known salmon fishing rivers. Between December and June the Quinnat Salmon run up the snow fed waters to the spawning grounds at the head of the river.
Trout fishing is also available in the river and also at Deep Creek near Mesopotamia Station.
Kayaking and canoeing / Rafting
The Rangitata is one of New Zealand’s most exciting stretches of white water. It is suitable for rafting and canoeing and provides a wide variety of conditions, which become more difficult as you get closer to the gorge.
