Truman Track

Located in Punakaiki

Truman Track is a walk through unspoiled subtropical forest where podocarp and rātā trees tower above thickets of vine and nīkau palms.

Explore the caverns

Truman Track is a walk through unspoiled subtropical forest where podocarp and rātā trees tower above thickets of vine and nīkau palms. The track emerges on a spectacular coastline with cliffs, caverns, a blowhole and a waterfall that plummets straight onto a rock-strewn beach. A stairway provides access to the beach. It is safe to explore here when the tide is out.

Incredible Sea Views

The track officially ends at a lookout point where you can view the Tasman Sea and the stunningly beautiful Truman Beach, but you can continue further and visit Truman Beach via the small staircase near the track end. Watch out for strong, sudden waves at high tide!

Take your time

Take your time checking out the fascinating limestone rock formations, and the waterfall there.

To get back to the main road, return along Truman Track the same way you’ve come.
