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 busy but definitely worth visiting just to see Tane Mahuta -the worlds largest known kauri tree awe inspiring in its size and the Maori mythology that surrounds it.

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.
