Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust is currently fundraising $600,000 for our Te Ahu Pātiki project to purchase 500ha of iconic land including the summits of Mt Herbert/Te Ahu Pātiki and Mt Bradley. Support our vision to develop this land into a conservation park protecting and restoring native biodiversity, with full permanent public access. Help us to create a legacy for our tamariki and future generations.

The new Te Ahu Pātiki conservation park protects public access on the Te Ara Pātaka tramping network which we have developed in partnership with Department of Conservation building on the work of many people before us. We provide Rod Donald Hut along the way for trampers to stay. Please book this via the DOC website before you start tramping.

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.

All donations received will now be put toward our Te Ahu Patiki project.
