The Orokonui Lagoon Walk, which takes about an hour to complete, is a loop track around a 56-hectare estuary in Waitati.
The environment encompasses saltmarsh, a flax swamp, grasslands and regenerating lowland forest.
It is home to an ongoing native vegetation restoration project. The walk was opened on Saturday, November 4.
