Walk amongst NZ Kauri, Rimu, Nikau trees in Warkworth
Oct 2020 • Couples
Great place to visit for a forest walk through mature NZ native trees(free entry). There is also a small museum($7 per adult) plus a shop which has beautiful handmade wooden toys & cheeseboards made with NZ timbers at very reasonable prices. Well worth the visit.

Delightful

Have driven past the sign on the main road many times over the years and wondered what was there. Finally turned off to check it out. Awesome! Stunning large Kauri, walkway through the Bush lovely although not accessible to those who have mobility issues. The museum was interesting, worth a look. Good parking.

Peaceful, impressive
Mar 2020
My wife and I were on an organized tour of New Zealand. We stopped here on our way back to Auckland. The walkway has several loops and one viewing platform. It takes about 20-25 minutes to do the entire walkway. You can pick up a guide about the plants you may see. There were a few kauri trees, but the forest itself was really the highlight of the walk. For really impressive kauri trees, I recommend going to Puketi Kauri forest near the Bay of Islands.

Coach stop - didn't get long enough to explore.
Feb 2020
Unfortunately we weren't given long enough to fully look this place over. The 800 year old Kauri tree was impressive. Less so the outbuildings & associated history attached.
All rather tired & not terribly well kept. The shop was quite bereft of true memorabilia too. Altogether not impressed.

Experience New Zealand as it used to be.

Here is one of the best preserved stands of New Zealand Bush. The incredible walkway makes for an easy look at what the country was in the past and the museum makes the history of the area come to life. Great place to visit and the nearby town of Warkworth is a gem.

A refreshing break
Feb 2020
We broke a long journey north at the Kauri Park which, although low key, is both amazing and refreshing. The huge, ancient tree adjacent to the car park is impressive enough but it’s then possible to enjoy a stroll through the woodland on board walks. The trees have an impressive history, having been used by the Maoris, by settlers, and by ship builders. Sadly, Kauri tree die-back is an ongoing problem so it’s very important to keep off the tree roots and to ensure that shoes have been disinfected before using the board walk. There is also a shop, museum (with some outdoor exhibits) and toilets. Donations are welcomed.

a relaxing walk in the native forest.
Dec 2019
Located North of Auckland, at Warkworth in the beautiful Parry Kauri Park. Take an fairly easy stroll along one of the well-made boardwalks, through the native forest. The board is lined with chicken wire so it is easy to walk.

You will remember I wrote before I wrote about the Kauri dieback disease. There was a guide who sits at the entrance who told us to clean our shoes.
There was a donation, we also paid to go to the Museum, which was $7.
The majestic tree at the entrance awed me. It is 800 years old.
You clean yr shoe at the first brush when you enter. After your walk, you brush your shoes at the back blue brush. The blue pad had some thing like soapy water.
This is the most sophisticated shoe washing gadget I have seen as a Kauri die back. It is called a cleaning Station. I take this very seriously. Kauri dieback is killing tree.
You can use the toilet at the Museum.

Kauri Trees
Nov 2019 • Friends
Beautiful kauri trees. One of them is 800 years old and the other is 600 years old. Enjoyed the walking track which only take 25 minutes return.

Kings of the forest!
Oct 2019 • Family
When you park up there’s a little donation box, all donations go towards the park. You’ll see the 800 year old Kauri right there with specs on its height etc. Follow the track past the 800 yr old Kauri and there is a cleaning station. I had my 5 & 6 year old and it was a good chance to explain Kauri dieback disease, what it’s doing to our Kauri & the importance of using cleaning stations & staying on the track during our walk. A nice 30 min walk to the viewing station and back. The Warkworth museum is also on site and when walking towards the museum, from the car park you can also see a smaller and younger 600 yr old Kauri. The museum has toilets if needed. I’d say taking a pram on the walking track through the forest wouldn’t be too enjoyable for both parent & child and it would be a bumpy ride for your wee one so would recommend taking a baby in a carry pack / pouch. Beauty like this & walking amongst native trees never disappoints.

Wonderful nature walk
Apr 2019 • Family
On the way back to Auckland, we stopped by Warkworth museum, but we did not go inside as the museum was closed at 3 pm. We saw a big Kauri tree standing in the front the carpark and we decided to have a look. This giant is 800 year-old and goes by the name McKinney Kauri .

We took a half hour walk through the boardwalks. The trail was great as we were surrounded by native trees and birds singing. It was also very easy to walk in and after 15 minutes we reached the lookout platform.
