Tane Mahuta

Tane Mahuta is in the Waipoua Forest of Northland Region, New Zealand. Its age is unknown but is estimated to be between 1250 and 2500 years old. Its Māori name means "Lord of the Forest", from the name of a god in the Māori pantheon. We also saw the three sisters and hundreds of other amazing Kauri trees throughout the incredible forest of which contains three quarters of New Zealand's remaining Kauri trees.
