Pukemokemoke (hill alone) with a height of 166m above sea level is a peak within the 40-hectare Pukemokemoke Reserve, which is now surrounded by farmland and a quarry, but which was once surrounded by forested wetland. The reserve, previously part of Orini Downs Station, was gifted to the nation by David Johnstone who was one of the major shareholders in the Station. The reserve, which has a conservation covenant placed on it, is now under the control of the David Johnstone Pukemokemoke Bush Trust. It was set up specifically to protect the bush and provide a recreational and educational asset for the community.
The reserve is located about 15 km north-west of Morrinsville and about 18 km east of Huntly. It is accessible down a right-of-way at 1382 Tauhei Rd. There is a carpark at the end of the right-of-way, by the entrance to the reserve.
