Rameka Track and Kotinga - Anatoki

Rameka Track

This popular track follows one of the earliest surveyed routes into the Takaka Valley and runs from Canaan to Central Takaka. Views from the open sections are superb, the forests are rich in birdlife and there are many places to picnic in the lower reaches of the stream. Allow 3 hours for the entire trip. Mountain bikes are allowed to use this track.

Kotinga - Anatoki

Salmon fishing

The flat expansive plains around Kotinga where the Anatoki River flows down to meet the Takaka River show a contrasting landscape of open dairy farm paddocks and carefully trimmed shelter belts of nashi and kiwifruit orchards.

In times gone by gold miners trekked this way; the Anatoki Track still leads from the end of Long Plain Road to the challenging mountains and passes in Kahurangi National Park with peaks like the Drunken Sailors and the Dragonís Teeth hinting at the wry humour of some of our high-country explorers. Most visitors nowadays will be heading through Kotinga to Bencarri Farm, home of the famous Anatoki Eels. Bencarri is a heritage farm breeding a wide range of endangered or rare domestic farm animals such as llamas, alpacas, sheep and yaks. Yarn and garments from these animals are available at the farm shop. Bencarri also offers the visitor pleasant riverside walks, picnic and cafe facilities. Just past Bencarri is the Anatoki Salmon Farm. Patrons can experience the thrill of catching their own fish for cooking at their pleasure later. Smoked and fresh salmon are also available for sale.
