Check for open and closed tracks and help protect our kauri

We have closed large sections of the Hunua 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.

Closed until further notice due to kauri dieback disease.

You cannot use the campground while it is closed. For more information see Protect our kauri trees.

Accessible by foot only when it's open.
