A bit of a dirt road to get to the entrance. Limited parking - when we were there a number of coaches arrived and parking space disappeared quickly. There isn't any overflow parking or nearby - if there is nothing there, there's nothing there. Free entry and a well posted walkway around in a loop. Spent about 20 minutes there and that was ample. Majestic trees and forest surrounds make for an enjoyable stop.

The tour group was too big. This meant it was hard for the guide to keep enough of the group within listening distance as she offered information and insights

It did not help that the battery powering her microphone ran out of power

Nevertheless, the short tour was interesting

My dream experience of the old Kauri forest, worth the drive and the spot is right where you park. Would recommend to everyone.

My husband and I went on this short walk and enjoyed it very much. It was a rainy but warm day and the trees in fact provided some protection from the rain. And because it is fully a boardwalk, the walking itself was easy and relatively protected i.e. we weren’t walking through mud or puddles etc. The trees were magnificent and the information boards along the walk were informative and helpful to read. This was a delightful little walk.

In terms of access, we drove there from Kaikohe, eventually along Waiare Rd, the last 14 km (approx) of which was dirt/gravel. Despite the rain, the road was in good condition and we’ll graded – we just slowed as we would ordinarily on a gravel road. After we left this area we then travelled along Pungaere Rd, which was bitumen and meant for easier travelling compared with the journey to get there.

A unique place to see ancient kauri trees. Easy path and boardwalk. Great information panels. Peaceful and majestic giants.

Highly recommend this walk. There are two walks. One is the 10 minute board walk around a number of very large Kauri trees, then you can drive about 1.5kms to the Motor Camp to do a 1 hr loop walk. It actually took us about 40 minutes and we were not hurrying. Again some great Kauri trees. Well worth the effort. There are some stunning views over the surrounding district as you drive there and back due to the elevation of the park.

Wonderful experience amongst the giants. Great for pre school aged children. Walk itself is short, but packs a good punch. Road there looks like it’s going to be tar sealed soon. No steps, suitable for prams.

We were originally planning to visit Tāne Mahuta, but that was a bit too much of a drive from our Paihia accommodation so we opted to visit this forest walk instead. We're glad we did too as we've not seen a kauri forest before and we were impressed by the scale of the trees.
Apart from the 3-4km of gravel road to get there, this is a beautiful spot that's an easy walk in a serene setting. Well worth a visit.

We just love a walk in the bush with the natural sunlight filtering through the trees and the birds flying from tree to tree doing their daily thing. This walk was enhanced by the wheelchair friendly board walk which was almost flat. In the centre is a round seat with a table as the centre piece. Sitting there and looking up into the magnificent Kauri trees was amazingly peaceful.
There is plenty of tarseal parking opposite the entrance (on a dusting metal road)

I love this short walk through the forest. I do it regularly as Ilive nearby and find it therapeutic.
The towering kauri are magnificent and the peaceful energy of the bush is so relaxing.
Wheelchair accessible boardwalk.
Easy flat walk, so it's no trouble for everyone to do.
Best done when there is no one else there so it's just you and the forest.
