The Bream Head Scenic Reserve is an area of significant ecological, historical and environmental importance. It is one of the best examples of a coastal forest reserve in the country and is of special significance to Māori who consider the whole area as wahi tapu (sacred place).
The Department of Conservation, iwi, the local community and Council are committed to the restoration of the area by eradicating animal and plant pests and replanting with native plants.
Predator control has allowed the re-introduction of North Island brown kiwi and there are future plans to introduce other bird species such as the bellbird and kaka.
