Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.


Time: 3hr return, Distance: 4km return

The Kauri Grove walk is accessed from the Te Haua Uru Track in the Tangihua Forest, which is located halfway between Whangarei on Northland’s east coast and Dargaville on the west coast.

The best way to enter the walk is to park at Omana Road. The walk starts on a well formed road until you reach the bushline. From here make your way toward the Tangihua Lions Lodge (about 15mins). Walk past the orienteering course and enter back into the bush, cross the bridge and link onto the Te Haua Ura Track. After about 20mins follow the Kauri Grove Track through a podocarp/broadleaf forest before coming to a small grove of mature kauri.

This all sounds VERY confusing, but it makes total sense when you are here! Enjoy.
