Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust

Rod Donald Trust aims to develop environmental guardians of the future by getting people out on beautiful Banks Peninsula.


The Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust has worked on wide and varied number of projects since it was set up in 2010. With a vision to develop environmental guardians of the future it works to provide that through its four strategic pillars:

• Access through a network of walkways, cycle ways and affordable campgrounds,

• Knowledge - sharing on environmental issues,

• Partnership with organisations already engaged with projects to achieve common goals

• Biodiversity enhancement through active projects.

We provide Rod Donald Hut for trampers to stay in along the beautiful Te Ara Pātaka walkway. To book this visit the DOC website.

We provide information on all the walks on Banks Peninsula on and our printed walking brochures and walks directory are available at Peninsula information centres and the DOC visitor centre in Christchurch.
