Kahikatea Trees

The Kahikatea is New Zealand's tallest native tree, and once covered much of the Waikato region. The Kahikatea can live to be more than 500 years old, although none of these trees have yet reached that age.


Drive North form Te Awamutu (toward Hamilton) for approximately 3 km. Turn left at Ngaroto Road. Drive approximately 1 1/2 km, and look for the signpost indicating the entrance to the bushwalk. Limited carparking is available off the road.
