I'm Marios, delivering the best of Aotearoa's nature walks to your device.
I've personally walked hundreds of New Zealand's tracks and spent months in libraries uncovering interesting information on New Zealand/Aotearoa. And you'll find a slice of that research on this page - enjoy!

These adolescent kauri could have a parent/child relationship. Because a kauri seed doesn’t travel far from its parent, trees are often in close proximity. But these two, do indeed, look like twins.
The track starts from the parking bay by the Twin Kauris alongside S.H.25, 3.5km north of Tairua and 38.5km south of Whitianga.
The track is uneven, but formed and clearly marked. It loops through regenerating kauri forest. The understorey is sparse, so take care following the marker triangles.

Old track not very well maintained. Steep in parts and slippery if wet. Not much to see apart from the Kauri at the entrance. Give this a miss! Not good for kids even though it's short.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
A short walk of about 30 minutes. You must clean your gear before and after visiting.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
