Summer Holidays 2019: Puketi Forest

On the road … and one perfect kauri bush walk.

Along the motorway heading South.
A little church, almost romantic.
Mataouri Bay.
At the beach.
Kawakawa, Main Street.
100water inspired bench.
Mural.
Manginangina Kauri Walk.
These giants have been around for a long time.
Close-up.
Searching for the crown, somewhere near the clouds.
Unfortunately, these guys are threatened by kauri dieback disease.
Without words.
Looking up.
A heaven for native wildlife and flora, including kiwi, rare bats and kauri snails.
Auckland, Half Moon Bay. Just a hand full of days until the ferry goes back.
