After a cooked breakfast this is the longest day of walking, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy the bush, birds and beaches of the western arm of Lake Waikaremoana. Make the most of the many scenic lakeside and lookout spots for rests and refreshments, and you can choose to indulge in a swim. After lunch an optional boat cruise reduces walking time, and makes the side track to Korokoro Falls more achievable. These stunning falls are worth the detour! Te Urewera forest is comprised of a huge range of tree and plant species, which provide homes for many native birds. You are likely to witness the amazing flights of the fantail, tomtit and kereru, and hear the melodious calls of the bellbird and tui. For the last part of the day, walk through kanuka forest, which forms a tunnel-like trail on the lake shore. Waiopaoa Hut, nestled amongst the luxuriant rainforest that stretches to the lake edge, is your home for the night.
