This tour was part of our bus tour we had booked on our cruise ship. We sure enjoyed communing with nature and seeing the baby Kauri trees along with the elders of 1,500 to 2,000 years old. The guide was very informative and we enjoyed...More
There are a lot of walks in the forest and the nature trail is the shortest of them (about 45 minutes). The tress and the diversity of flora is great. They have also done a really good job on name plagues for the different plants....More
If you are a major fan of Kauri trees and beautiful New Zealand forests, and you have visited the major, more easily accessible and more touristy groves, Puketi is well worth a visit. It is a bit "out of the way." You must drive on...More
As it was late-ish when we arrived at the Kauri Walk, we decided to just do the short boardwalk option. It was an easy walk on a well maintained boardwalk. The short walk was not on the map shown at the entrance, but you can't...More
They are big, really big, no really they are majestic. The walkway opens out to vistas of huge kauris, and the imagination takes over, and suggests what must have been here prior to European settlement. Brilliant.
This walk starts from Puketi Forest Recreation area.Car parking, Toilets and Camp Site.

We came in from the town of Kerikeri on Pungarere Road. The road is gravel, but not unsafe. We parked and just crossed the road and less than 50 metres was the smaller boardwalk loop. There is a larger walk (which we didn't do) that is shown on the map at the start of the boardwalk. It shows there is a side road (unnamed) that comes off Waiare Road that you can drive right up to the walk. Also it shows the access to the walking track along Puketi Road as having a section of the walk that is currently closed.
I photographed the map for my review, but Trip Advisor answers do not allow links, so maybe if you go to my review where I have a photo of a sign- Welcome To Manginangina - and this is the map of the walks which show also the roads and how close they all are.
