This is a must do. Just the drive, with the amazing vista is worth it. The guide at Tane Mahuta was very informative, sharing Maori stories and legends about Tane Mahuta, his siblings and parents.

Very interesting visit - it is amazing to see trees so big, they almost don't seem real. There was a Maori guide there to tell us all about them. There are washrooms here and a picnic area but not a lot of parking spaces.

These giants are as old as Christianity, think on that as you stand in their shadows and feel humbled by their enormity. Father of the forest is so wide it looks like a cliff face at first glance. amazing nature.
