Trounson Kauri Park is a DOC restoration project that includes a 586-hectare forest reserve and farmland. The project aims to restore the former richness of native biodiversity this forest once boasted, and to let visitors enjoy a glimpse of what pristine kauri forests were once like.
The reserve is home to several threatened species, such as the North Island brown kiwi, kukupa (NZ pigeon), pekapeka (bats) and kauri snails. It also incorporates a magnificent dense strand of Kauri that has long been recognised as one of the best examples in the country.
It is a 40 minute informational loop walk for anybody wanting to take a stroll during the day.
As an alternative sign up for our famous guided night walk to experience the wondrous sights and sounds of the forest at night and gain some local knowledge on kiwis, kauri dieback and other species that call the reserve home.
