“Kauri Trees, up close and personal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

The Auckland City Trail has a pair of century old Kauri Trees near the northern end of the trail (i.e. by the entrance NOT at the parking lot!). The trail itself is very serene and calming. A nice 40 to 50 minute walk.

So close to the city, but many beautiful walks, great ocean views, fabulous trees and a great get-away.
