Tane Mahuta Walk

Visit the lord of the forest

Time: 10 mins one way

Grade: Easy

Start: SH12, Waipoua Forest Get Google Maps directions

This is a gentle walk along flat track and boardwalk taking you to see the giant tree named Tane Mahuta (Lord of the Forest). This magnificent tree is 51.5m in height and contains it's own ecosystem within it's branches. Hard to take in its scale and age being over 2000 years old.

PLEASE Prevent Kauri Die Back Disease Spreading:
After visiting Kauri trees please
1. Clean all dirt off footwear, hiking poles, tyres and equipment before and after a visit to a Kauri Forest
2. Stay on tracks at all times and away from Kauri roots. Walking and disturbing soil around the roots can spread the disease and damage fine feeder roots. Please keep our Kauri alive for future generations. Kia Toitu He Kauri.

Fabulous rental service. Easiest by far! Book online. Well priced. I actually got the car I wanted and not an 'upgrade' that I had to pay for. No additional costs when you get to the desk after a long flight. Staff were friendly and helpful. Drop off was super easy. I would definitely rent again and highly recommend!
