Seeing Tane Mahuta was one of my 'must do's' when we knew we were going to Northland. It was better than I had dreamed of, but also different to what I expected. There was plenty of parking on the road and the entrance is clear and well-marked. There is a biosecurity area to pass through which had clear instructions and was no inconvenience. The disinfecting process sees visitors step on a plate and the soles of your shoes are sprayed (and if you are wearing shorts or skirts, likely you will get a bit wet on the legs!) The path is wooden and it's fenced. Its a short walk and before you know it you are standing in front of the great Tane Mahuta. I think I expected to be closer, but actually when you take a moment to consider this kauri tree, you leave in complete awe. And with kauri dieback, you know the reason for the biosecurity measures are necessary and a small price to pay. We had visited the kauri museum in Matakohe beforehand and I'd recommend that so you appreciate even more of the history. When we arrived at Tane Mahuta there was a guide who told us more about the kauri tree and surrounding area. That was a nice surprise and we are so happy she was there, otherwise we would not have learned so much about Tane Mahuta and how special the area is. It really was a magical | spiritual place.

Always worth the short walk to see such an amazing tree. Do not miss! The walk is lovely and sadly very short. I would have liked to explore more of the surrounding area.

Some 50 years after first visiting the tree is still an awesome sight plus the steps in place to protect the tree from damage will hopefully make it accessible for many future generations,

Tane Mahuta is majestic. Still healthy, and well-protected by spray to footwear and boardwalk. See it while the Kauri trees are all in good health as that ay not be forever.

Something every Kiwi should experience...if only to acknowledge how close to losing this God of the Forest we are. Tane Mahuta is surrounded by boardwalk and has his own minder on site. The boot cleaning process at entry is awesome but devastating to see fellow visitors not doing the process. It isn’t hard to brush your footwear, check and stomp the disinfectant spray button. Show respect people...Tane gifts us his presence...be thankful and acknowledge the death of his siblings as you drive through this area. The kauri look down...we need to remember to look up and act worthy.

Impressive sight to see such a mammoth of a tree still alive but also makes you a wee bit sad to think of everything that has been felled. That said still a really great attraction t I appreciate it’s magnificence. The kids really enjoyed the experience going on an little adventure through the nahare. Handy to have a little coffee cart across the road too for a morning snack and a coffee afterwards.

This is a walk that features one of the world's great and ancient trees - a giant, 2,000 year old elder of the forest. Deforestation and now disease have left us only 2% of the former numbers of these great trees. It's important to see them and learn of them to help preserve them.

An awesome experience. Highly recommend to see Tane Mahuta and Te Matua. No photos do these 2 trees justice how magnificent they are. The walk through the kauri trees was also brilliant.
