Stinton Cascade Nature Reserve is managed by the Department of Conservation and Environment. There are a collection of three Reserves. Gardiner Road passes through one of them.

Stinton Cascades Nature Reserve  is classified by the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC)  as a Nature Reserve. Nature Reserves are set aside for the conservation and restoration of the natural environment, the protection, care and study of indigenous flora and fauna, and the preservation of any feature of archaeological, historic or scientific interest. Only low-impact recreation may be permitted, and this only providing it does not adversely affect ecosystems.

We are very fortunate to have such a well-preserved Reserve in our area. It is very important that people and animals who walk through the Reserve are careful not to spread dieback disease.
