A Manatū Taonga audio guide to Waipoua Forest. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide in the image carousel above.

Waipoua Forest is the site of majestic giant kauri, including the towering 1,500-year-old Tāne Mahuta. Waipoua is one of New Zealand’s few remnants of kauri forest – much of which was logged for timber in the 19th and 20th centuries.
