Kurinui is a 750 ha privately-owned property between Hampden and Dunback. It includes a variety of habitats including forest, shrubland, scrub, and grassland, and several small streams and wetlands. The land is very dissected and is notable for the presence of large rock outcrops. All stock were removed from the property in 2003 to allow recovery and regeneration of native vegetation. Over time it is expected that most of the land will become covered in forest, as it would have been in pre-human times. We will spend the day exploring the property with the guidance of the owners, Scott and Dinah Dunavan.
