The McKee Memorial Reserve is one of a network of such areas that are set aside throughout New Zealand and managed in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977. The bush, located against the edge of the Moutere Gravel cliff formation, is the only significant coastal native bush left between Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park.
