A part of the Taieri scroll plain, the 48ha Paerau Wetland in the Styx Basin is on the true right-hand side of the Upper Taieri River upstream of the confluence with the Logan Burn. 

Access is via Upper Taieri Paerau Road, 1km south of Loganburn Ford Rd. Follow the track on the true left of Logan Burn for about 1km. You will then need to walk the last 300 metres to reach the edge of the wetland. Hunting is on an oxbow. There is no permanent maimai.

The wetland is bounded by the Taieri River and a private fence. The terrain is boggy and subject to flooding and freezing.
