Situated in the Onamalutu Valley, the Onamalutu Scenic Reserve is administered by the Department of Conservation.

The site features a remnant of podocarp forest of the type once common in the region before major deforestation by European settlers. Kahikatea, totara and other species are present in this forest remnant.

 In addition to short tracks through this pocket of native forest, a large grassy area suitable for a wide range of activities and a campsite and picnic area make the location popular as a place for family outings less than half an hour's drive from Blenheim.
