Hanmer Heritage Forest Trust

To fund future programs - extending the sculpture project and develop some fully accessible trails - a forest for everyone


The Hanmer Heritage Forest Trust was established by gazetted covenant in 2009 to maintain and develop the public amenity value of this 204ha forest, established in the late 1800's as a forest species trial. The land is now owned by Ngai Tahu with the forest trust continuing to develop the trails, open spaces, seating and most recently sculptures for all the public to engage with. Further trail projects are required to ensure fully accessible trails and extend the hugely successful sculpture project.

We think the tracks and signage in the forest are amazing. Congratulations to all who work on them. The carvings are outstanding and are a wonderful initiative. Please put this donation towards further carvings. One small suggestion... because we often meet visitors who have become totally lost whilst looking for the fairy doors could we suggest placing some signage at key intersections showing their location. Thank you. Bev and Graham Heenan
