Animals present are pigs and red deer.
A significant amount native bush covers this block. The terrain is steep to rolling, and runs to extremely high cliff edges on the seaward side.
Yellow-eyed penguins/hōiho nest in the south east near the cliff tops – hunting and dogs are not permitted in this area.
The Hinahina Cove block is restricted. You need to get a permit specifically for this block, from the local DOC office.
There are two access points:
Landholder permission must be obtained to cross from the end of Maitland Road into the hunting block, or to hunt in the private forestry adjoining the block.
