Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

A well-developed track with footbridges, boardwalks and information signs leads from 309 Road to the Waiau Kauri Grove - though this is a distant view of the most impressive section of the grove, the track leads right to it (it's about 30 minutes from the carpark to the trees and back). There is also a short side track to the "Siamese Kauri", two trees with a shared trunk. The largest kauri tree here is about 600 years old and 1.9 meters in diameter, fairly young and small by historic kauri standards.
