Admire our native vegetation
Time: 1.5 hours return
The track passes through stands of young Kauri, tōtara and associated native vegetation. As you walk along the track, you will pass the remains of the historic Kerikeri hydro-election station, built as part of the hydro-electric generation scheme that operated between 1930 and 1967. The remains of the building are open to the public.
You can see interesting rock formations close to the Wharepuke Falls. At the base of these falls is a popular swimming-hole for confident swimmers.
PLEASE Prevent Kauri Die Back Disease Spreading.
After visiting Kauri trees please do the following:
1. Clean all dirt off footwear, hiking pole, 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.
