Whakarewarewa Forest

Supremely tranquil and beautiful, the 5600 hectare Whakarewarewa Forest is known for its mix of native and exotic forest, in particular its majestic Californian redwood trees. It is one of the oldest exotic forests in the country and it has a rich history with local Maori. Nearly 200 tree species were originally planted here in order to determine which types could be cultivated for timber, and the forest continues to play a role in the wider industry today.

There are no predators in the forest, but there are many animals, insects and birds to be found among the canopies of ferns, shrubs and trees, all part of the greater forest ecosystem. Located 5 km from central Rotorua, it’s just a short drive away in your rental car.

Locals refer to it as The Redwoods, and it’s a mecca for outdoor leisure in all forms. The park is ideal for picnics, for one. Walking and hiking are also popular pastimes; tracks range from quick half hour jaunts to full day endeavours. Most of the walking trails begin at the Redwoods i-Site. Venturing further will lead to view of the city and countryside, including the Blue and Green lakes. There is also the commercial Redwoods Treewalk, which takes you on an ecological journey through the forest, with a bird’s eye view from 12 metres above ground. It is made up of 21 suspension bridges, which traverse from tree to tree. Over the course of a half hour you’ll come to truly appreciate the grandeur and serenity on display here.

Whakarewarewa Forest is also renowned as a mountain biking mecca - the trails have been rated among the best in the world. Created in partnership with pro bikers, the 160 km of trails cater for all skill levels. And with names like Check It Out and Be Rude Not To, they’re bound to make you smile. You can hike a bike in town or at the trailhead off Waipa State Mill Road across from the forest.


Great value - thanks! Definitely will recommend you to my friends.
