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. Work out when and for how long to visit Tane Mahuta Walk and other Opononi attractions using our handy Opononi itinerary builder tool.
