Welcome to Friends of Le Roys Bush

 Welcome to the Friends of Le Roys Bush website

Le Roys Bush (Wai Manawa) is a beautiful complex of reserves with streams and walkways running from Birkenhead Village (Highbury) down to Little Shoal Bay beach

There are 8 entrances to Le Roys Bush - the main entrance is from 251 Hinemoa Street (down the driveway between 245 and 253 Hinemoa Street).

Two vital rules to protect Le Roys Bush from kauri dieback: 
Ensure your footwear and pets' paws are kissably clean before you leave home.
Keep to tracks at all times - this includes dogs, kids and adults.
Visit our Kauri dieback page to learn more.
