The spiritual environment of the Waipoua Forest provides a natural stage for an unforgettable encounter with some of the largest and oldest remaining kauri trees in the world. Step into our World' and let our local guides take you on a memorable and interactive journey through nature's stages of evolution. Meet our ancestors; the mighty Te Matua Ngahere ('The Father of the Forest') estimated to be between 3,000 and 4,000 years old, his mighty girth is over 5 metres (15ft) in diameter. 'The Four Sisters' are a graceful collection of kauri trees that have grown close together in sibling harmony and finally, Tane Mahuta ('The Lord of the Forest') who stands an impressive 51 metres (150ft) tall. Join us for an intimate NIGHT encounter with giants who have silently stood witnessing the passing of time and learn how these trees are inter-twined with the lives of local Maori and the important role they play in the eco-system that is the Waipoua Forest.
