Help protect our kauri trees

We have closed large sections of the Waitākere Ranges to prevent the spread of kauri dieback.

When you visit our parks you need to clean your footwear and equipment to avoid transferring disease from one area to another. For more information see Protect our kauri trees.

Closed until 1 November 2020 to help prevent the spread of kauri dieback
