Visit Tane Mahuta in the Waipoua Forest, New Zealand's largest known living kauri tree. This short walk leads you under cooling shade of the forest canopy to the majestic Tane Mahuta, New Zealand's largest living kauri tree. Not far into the walk, a sweeping corner of the track suddenly brings you face to face with the Lord of the Forest'. When you catch your first breath-taking view of this magnificent tree, you'll feel compelled to pause for a while. You can almost feel Tane Mahuta's strength and ancient presence, and its overwhelming size makes visitors look like dwarfs. There is a wooden fence and a seat to view the tree. To get a broader view of Tane Mahuta, you can move further along the track, which then leads to another viewing platform.
