The Pelorus Bridge is in a beautiful area of native forest, now classified as a scenic reserve.  The forest includes beech, podocarp and broadleaf species, and is home to a variety of native and introduced birds.  It also has a population of endangered native bats.  As you will see from the photographs it had been, and still was, raining heavily when we visited.  I would love to go back and walk some of the tracks in good weather.

The Pelorus Sound and River were originally known to Maori as Te Hoiere.  According to Maori tradition Te Hoiere was one of the great canoes of the migrations that settled New Zealand.
