QEII encourages people to experience, appreciate and respect New Zealand's diverse heritage by promoting public access to land the Trust owns itself and to land protected by other open space covenantors, wherever possible.
Most of QEII-owned properties (there are currently 28) have been donated by gift or bequest. The Trust acknowledges the generosity of these benefactors. It is also grateful for the support of local councils and community groups who assist with the day-to-day management of these properties.
While many covenants are unsuitable for open public access, some landholders have made their covenants available for visitors. Please respect their property and the special values they have protected.
The Warrens' covenant protects a limestone gorge with a glow worm cave and many varieties of fern and orchid growing on the sheer walls of the damp gorge environment.
