Kauri Tree

Hakarimata Walkway

Our own Kauri Trees! Rare in the Waikato!


Enjoy our own area of Native Bush, including Kauri Trees, (6-800 years old) Glimpses and the sounds of our native birds, streams and waterfalls, all this and more, just 2 k's south of Huntly on the west bank of the Waikato River (Parker Rd, of Hakarimata Rd, continuation of River Riew Rd)
I can recommend this Walkway! Recently walked the first part and was very impressed! Plenty of Kauri Trees, and other natives, plenty of wooden steps, also places to sit and rest! Start and finish are a bit steep, but the 2 hour work is extremely worth while.
Check out some of our photos right here, and enjoy!


Lake Hakanoa Walkway

Now the track is complete, fully metalled, this walkway around popular Lake Hakanoa, popular for boating and also course fishing. Many houses have been built around the sides of this popular Lake. The Balloons on the Lake photo was taken from a house above the Lake, looking across to the domain. see the photo here!
To find this area, head across the railway line, and follow the signs to the Domain.


Weavers Park and Lake Rotoiti

Weavers park, site of the original Weavers Crossing Coal Mine, now a park, with Lake Roroiti and the proposed site of the New Waikato Coalfields Museum. This area is part of a giant project by Solid Enegy - more details to come. To see views of the lake click here. To walk around this area will take about 1 hour 15 minutes easy walking, on a metalled track.
