The track passes through private land in this section. Make sure you have your QCTLC Pass - click here for more information »

This part of the journey also follows the ridge line. Here gorse and mānuka are prolific, sheltering shrubs and trees that will one day shade the way. A side walk leads to the Onahau Lookout just before the descent to Te Mahia Saddle begins.

At Mistletoe Bay Eco Village, there are cabins and campsites. There is also private accommodation at Te Mahia Bay.
