Sinclair Wetlands

These internationally significant wetlands are a 315-hectare waterfowl reserve.

They have numerous shallow peaty lagoons, a labyrinth of waterways, and two islands fringed with flax, raupo (native bullrush) and grasses.

The wetlands are renowned for their abundance of kai (food), and contain Whakaraupuka (Ram Island), which is the former site of the Pa (fortified village) of Tukiauau.
