Know before you go
- Easy flat walk for young and old, taking 40 minutes to circumnavigate.
- Some of the track is sealed while the rest is grass and buggies can negotiate the track when the ground is dry. Only suitable for wheelchairs on the sealed parts of the track.
- Cultural considerations - This is a wai tapu site and so we ask that you please leave your picnic to have on the grass area next to the carpark. The toilets are located here too.
- No dogs allowed on site.
What to bring

Ōtukaikino wetland is on the outskirts of Christchurch City, by the northern suburb of Belfast. The entrance is off Main North Road, between Chaneys Corner and the Belfast end of the Northern Motorway.
