The park is a remnant of the original bush that early European settlers named the "Ninety Mile Bush" - so called because it extended for ninety miles from lower Wairarapa to North of this park. Visitors will get an impression of what these settlers faced when they arrived from Denmark, Sweden and Norway - an almost impenetrable forest.
