Check for open and closed tracks and help protect our kauri

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.

Find open and closed tracks and read about protecting our kauri.
