National Parks

Kahurangi National Park

kahurangi-700

In the Maori language, Kahurangi means ‘treasured possession’. The well-graded Heaphy Track crosses the park and is the longest of the Department of Conservation’s ‘Great Walks’. The Heaphy Track is certainly a trail to be treasured as it passes through some of the oldest rocks, most varied plants and rarest birds in New Zealand.

Richmond Ranges

maitai-700

This is an ideal tramper’s park with easy access roads and 250 km of cut and marked tracks linking 30 huts. The park includes all 5 species of beech in New Zealand as well as the common podocarps; rimu, totara, matai, miro and kahikatea. Rare birds that are present include blue duck, yellow-crowned parakeet, kaka and kiwi.

Discover this beautiful park for yourself – it’s by far too good to bypass.
