The QEII covenant at Varleys Hill on the Otago Peninsula includes a small salt meadow, lowland broadleaf forest, large areas of kanuka, and a hill top shrubland. Since farm stock were excluded 15 years ago, the broadleaf understory has recovered rapidly and a variety of ferns are present under the kanuka canopy. Moira Parker will show us around the covenant and we may also visit a second nearby covenant.
