The Reserve is predominantly Tarairi but there are fine specimens of Tawa and Pukatea and Kohekohe. There is an abundance of New Zealand Jasmine and Hen and Chickens ferns. We even found a Green Hooded Orchid. There are no tracks in the reserve but it is easy to explore. This bush is interesting as it is quite different to most other northland bush.
At 351 metres Whatitiri Maunga is one of the higher hills in the region. The views from around the reserve are fantastic
