The Waimana Valley at the north end of Te Urewera National Park has a great deal to offer visitors, providing opportunities to tramp, fish, hunt and camp. On warm, fine nights keep an eye out for long-tailed bats (Chalinolobus tuberculatus), one of only two endemic land mammals (the short-tailed bat is the other).
