Amazingly tall trees, rushing rivers, a wide variety of habitats and a fascinating past combine to create Whirinaki Forest Park. This was one of New Zealand’s most famous conservation battlegrounds, where people actively fought to save a magnificent native podocarp forest.

Today Whirinaki’s beauty is protected for everyone to enjoy through a comprehensive network of walks, tracks and huts with a range of opportunities for visitors.
