Thankfully the Kiwis saved a small portion of their 1,000 year-old plus Kauri trees. A level walkway loops through the forest for about a quarter of a mile. Shortly after beginning the walk you come to a fork. Take either the left or right fork...More

This short easy boardwalk give a good idea of what a Kauri tree really is. The ground is very swamp hence the boardwalk. 30mins is adequate. Small car park but no other facilities. The last few miles of the journey is on an unsealed road...More
