The tour starts with a visit to the kauri Museum in Matakohe. This museum showcases the history of Kauri, focusing on the pioneering era when logging was a livelihood. Explore the giant Kauri trees, beautiful timber, and the history surrounding resin. In the forest you will meet Te Matua Ngahere - 'The Father of the Forest'. At between 2,500 and 3,000 years old he is the oldest known kauri tree in the world. The highlight of the tour will be your meeting with 'The Lord of the Forest' - the giant Tane Mahuta! Your guide will formally greet the silent giant. Interacting with the ancient kauri trees that have watched over Waipoua Forest over 2000 years would be an unforgettable experience.
