A guidebook to the Awaruku Bush Reserve. Compiled by Hugh Willis, president of the Awaruku Bush Society. Produced Nov 1980.

In 1970, North Shore residents won their battle to save a pocket of native bush in the middle of the "bulldozer belt" from being cut into housing sites.


=the area between Glenvar Rd, Awaruku and Reynolds Place, Torbay,

The Awaruku is the most-used of the Torbay reserves. Its lofty trees and tall ferns and palms form a shade canopy that Mr Willis said makes the reserve "beautiful and cool on the hottest day."

As the city has grown, the reserve also offers suburbanites another rare attraction: "You can't hear the traffic once you're in the bush."

Awaruku enthusiasts recommend people try a time-honoured stress-soothing experiment. Go to the old kahikatea tree. Sit down and be absolutely still for three minutes.

* Features: 650-year-old kahikatea tree, mature puriri and taraire.
