Tane Mahuta Walk, Opononi

(340+ reviews on the web)
Hiking Trail
Peer up at the largest living kauri tree at Tane Mahuta Walk, a protected sanctuary since the 1950s. Reach the ancient tree via a short boardwalk, leading through the leafy native vegetation. Sit by the base of the immense 4.9 m (16.1 ft) wide trunk, dwarfed only by the tree's 45 m (148 ft) height. Head farther along the track to a second viewing platform for a wider view this giant, allegedly well over a thousand years old. Stay on the boardwalk at all times to avoid tripping over the tree's vulnerable surface roots.

  • If you're in the Northland this HAS to be on you to-do list! The size and age of this tree and the others nearby really puts into perspective how insignificant we are as a people. It's truly humbling!  more »
