Kauri trees are native to New Zealand but due to their size and the greediness of man, most were cut down (after 600+ years of growing to massiveness) to be converted into paper and lumber... :( There's still a few to be found though, and the Kauri Grove here didn't disappoint.
|Kauri are big!|
|Way bigger than a Jacqui!|
|Water flows peacefully through the grove...|
|An excellent view Jacqui found... nice little pool in the creek!|
After that we drove just a short distance further and found Waiau Falls, which was super duper pretty for a small waterfall like this. :) Definitely worth the stop and short 2 minute walk from the car!
|So are we! :)|
