We had seen these giant trees in California but this was an absolutely wonderful walk. The thrill of being 10+ meters above the ground and the wobbly suspension bridges was super fun for our kid. The place reminds me of the Ewoks' Tree Village! When...More

Hi Lisa W! Great to hear you enjoyed the night lights, even though the bridges were a bit scary for you! It's certainly worthwhile overcoming a bit of vertigo to enjoy the beautiful lanterns and coloured ground lights!

A great way to learn about New Zealand’s Redwoods while walking along 6m above the forest floor. We’re heading back tonight to see it all lit up.
