Walter Scott Reserve

Virtual Te Awamutu link

Walter Scott Reserve is an area of native bush near Mt. Pirongia (29km / 25minutes drive from Te Awamutu). It includes two easy/moderate walks - one is about 30 minutes and the other is about 2 hours. The walks are suitable for most age groups, with slightly hilly terrain.


  1. From Te Awamutu Post Office, head along Alexandra Street to Pirongia (11km).
  2. Turn left at Pirongia Service Station and head along SH39 (toward Otorohanga) for approx 10km. Turn right into Ngutunui Road.
  3. After 3.8km (just before the school) turn right into Pekanui Road.
  4. After 2.7km turn left into Scott Road and drive another 800m to the end of the road, where you'll find a grass carpark. The entrance to the bushwalk is just to the left of the carpark.
