The Great Adventure: Day One: Waipoua Forest

Before we set off East again we went North along the Kauri Coast through the Waipoua Forest .

The vastness of this 9105 hectare forest conservation area is astonishing

From the top of this tower stretches forest in every direction

A great place for bloggers.

 As far as the eye can see, and then some 
The River Waipoua - can you spot the blogger! 


Tane Mahuta - See Pauline's Blog for interesting information on this wonderful and ancient Kauri Tree


  1. Wow, that river shot is breathtaking!

  2. Oh, wow...that tree! And I did see the blogger :)

  3. I remember that tower from visiting Waipoua Forest in 1973 - I was 8!

  4. The tropics are so very different from anything I've ever seen...very full and packed tight with interesting greenery...and there IS a blogger down there!
