Boardwalk over the Tautuku Estuary: (signposted) (Map Reference No 10)

 Park at the end of the road just over the Fleming River. Turn around on arrival to avoid being locked in by other vehicles. You will walk down the abandoned rail bed of a hand dug log hauler cut. The cuts criss-cross the Catlins bush and were dug by hand and excavated with a wheel barrow.  Back breaking work.  The boardwalk at the end of the track will lead you out to a prehistoric visa of jointed reeds and you may get lucky and see one of the small native fern birds that live in the area. Allow 30 minutes for the walk out there and back.
