Wyndham Activities & Attractions
We're lucky to have a large variety of activities and attractions right on our doorstep here in Wyndham. See below for some of the most popular...
In Wyndham, we have world famous trout fishing right on our doorstep. The Mimihau Stream (200m walk) and Mataura Rivers (500m walk) are very close by, offering anglers ample chance to bag a catch.
Both rivers have good stocks of Brown Trout and the occasional Salmon.

Kamahi Scenic Reserve
Located on the hill above Edendale, the Kamahi (Edendale) Scenic Reserve has a great loop track through thick native bush and is an excellent place to encounter all five examples of native podocarp trees: rimu, miro, matai, kahikatea and totara. The easy loop track provides a short 15 minute return walk and longer 30 minute return walk.
The starting point of the track is an open area set into the woods that offers fantastic views across the Mataura Valley towards the Catlins. It is a great picnic site for families, friends or couples.
Seaward Downs Scenic Reserve
Like Kamahi (Edendale) Scenic Reserve, Seaward Downs is another small pocket of native forest within easy reach of Wyndham. There are good examples of podocarp forest trees, which are favoured by New Zealand pigeon/kereru.
The reserve includes a 40 minute return walking track through native forest. The walk begins and ends at the picnic area. Please note that the track may be muddy in places after wet weather.
Maple Glen Gardens
A short 12 minute drive from Wyndham, Maple Glen Gardens feature a 42 acre private garden, nursery, aviary, woodland and wetland. Maple Glen is currently open to visitors all year round and there is no set charge for admission (entry by donation). A must see for anyone with a botanical interest.
