Hard to drive to from either Dargaville or Kaikohe but well worth the effort - strangely enough it's only a 5 minute walk from the car park in the Waipoua Forest.
Tane Mahuta "Lord of the Forest" is about 2000 years old and the surrounding forest is also beautiful.

Tane Mahuta is a fantastic sight to see. There was a VERY informative guide at the tree who knew a lot about Kauri history and all the great trees. Decent parking. Nice restrooms. Even a small cafe (trailer/kiosk) in the car park.

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.
