Introduction

Pelorus Bridge Scenic Reserve is one of the most accessible examples of mature native forest in the region. This site is ideal for groups wanting to study birds, pests, rivers and forest ecosystems.

The Pelorus Bridge Scenic Reserve is located midway between Blenheim and Nelson, 18 kilometres west of Havelock.

The reserve is one of the most accessible examples of mature native forest in the region, and an ideal site for students to study birds, pests, or rivers and to begin learning about forest ecosystems and trees in particular.

Some simple plant identification techniques can be taught and there is also potential to talk about the exploration and exploitation of the land by Maori and early European colonists. The river provides swimming and kayaking opportunities.
