Waihi Bush was originally settled by David Musgrave's family in the 1870's, when the Woodbury area was a significant source of native timber. Fortunately 15 ha of virgin native bush were retained on the property and this is now the only remaining example left on the Canterbury Plains. It includes many magnificent totara, matai and kahikatea over 1000 years old, several over 8 metres in girth. With help from their Jack Russell - Phoebe, they have managed to get pests like possums, feral cats, rats and ferrets down to very low levels, which are reflected in high levels of native birds like kereru (native pigeon) bell birds, fantails and grey warblers.
