What to expect

The Short walks at Mistletoe Bay Eco Village are either along the coast with great views into the local bays or follow an old access route to Queen Charlotte Track which is an easy walk as it follows the coastline into the next beautiful bay. The Campsite itself is beside a beautiful private beach and has a small stream flowing through it. Toilets and facilities are provided by Mistletoe Bay Trust and you can arrange accommodation there if you want to stay the night.  64 3 573 4048
