Help protect our kauri trees
We have closed large sections of our parks network 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.
Ecology Trail is partly closed for upgrade
We are upgrading part of this trail to protect our kauri. We expect work to be completed by the end of July 2019.
