This is really worth seeing, well laid path to access. The local guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information. Seeing a tree that has been around for over 2000 years is truly something special, seen by generations previous and still to come....More

This place is truly beautiful. So peaceful and spiritual, you can feel the greatness as you approach the king of the forest. It’s only a short easy walk in from the road - parking could be improved as it is a bit haphazard. Well worth...More

We decided to do this as wet day activity. The walks were just great paths well layed out and easy walking access. The trees are amazing and a must see creation of mother nature. Lots options for walks as distances. Once in life time experience.

Pay your respects to the father of Kauri trees with a 2 hour drive from Whangarei, and a very short walk - no pack needed - to Tanè Mahuta. This beautiful tree is worth every kilometer. Then if you feel like a decent walk/easy hike...More

We visited Tane Mahuta for the so-many-times and it was as impressive as ever. It is majestic and the stories behind it puts things in perspective and puts humans back to their inferior space. The guide, Conrad, was amazing. He had so much knowledge about...More
