Photo: Waipoua Kauri Forest Tourist Attractions Northland New Zealand

The Waipoua Forest is a forest which protects one of the best and last remaining tracts of Kauri Trees in New Zealand. Several massive Kauri Trees are among the popular tourist attractions of this forest in Northland on the North Island of New Zealand.

A beautiful and ancient coniferous tree, Agathis australis also known as the kauri tree, is the largest species of tree found in New Zealand (by volume rather height). One of the largest tracts of protected kauri trees can be found at the Waipoua Forest in the balmy Northland region on the North Island of New Zealand.

As a popular tourist attraction, Waipoua Forest attracts visitors who come to see two of the largest living kauri trees in New Zealand namely Tane Mahuta - which means Lord of the Forest, and Te Matua Ngahere - which means Father of the Forest. Tane Mahuta is the largest kauri with a trunk height of 17.68 metres (58 feet) while Te Matua Ngahere is the second largest and stands at a little over 16 metres (52 feet). ... continue below the picture...

The Four Sisters, another popular tourist attraction in the forest are a group of four kauri trees whose roots have bound together while growing. Despite this, the trees continue to grow tall and straight.

Te Matua Ngahere and The Four Sisters can be found along State Highway 12 (which runs through the Waipoua Forest) and are sign posted "Kauri Walks", while Tane Mahuta is located a little further north along Highway 12 along a 200 metre long track.
