A must visit location and only a short walk from the carpark. Majestic tall trees with 4 of them towering up into the open space above. You will NEVER see such a "family" any where else! Promise you will not be disappointed.

Beautiful trees; sad history helps us realize we need to preserve what's left. Maori night guided tour a great trip.
