Love this attraction. It is nestled amoungst a beautiful forest of native trees and the air is so fresh and clean.
It is such a quick walk in and is very sheltered from the elements which makes it perfect for a sunny or rainy day.
Love how there are now cleaning stations for shoes as well to protect the forest.

What a magnificent specimen. The tree was so large in height and width. Was well worth the stop to go in and see. The surrrounding forest was also interesting. Great care was taken to make sure the forest was not contaminated from soil on our shoes

The drive through the Waipoua Forest is beautiful no matter what the weather. Tane Mahuta is a must do, it's a truly magnificent tree. Its a really easy, 5min walk. If you have time (and you only need about 20mins) stop at The Kauri Walks, the four sisters walk is only about 10mins, on boardwalks, to see four large kauri trees growing together.

An amazing try, I wouldn't at all be surprised if this is where the inspiration for the tree in Avatar came from. You just have to stand back and take in the height and breadth of the tree. Please remember to clean your shoes, protect our Kauri.

We weren't even thinking of heading south along the west coast until our guide at the Treaty Grounds told us about this amazing tree. After taking it all in we were so glad we did, it's breathtaking. The hygiene process to enter the walkways is interting and fun. The raised boardwalk is well maintained and let's the vegetation remain where it should be. A great free attraction which you will never forget.
