Tokorangi Forest

Located on the outskirts of Rotorua, was Tokorangi’s redwood forest. While these trees are more famously associated with California, the redwoods in New Zealand grow faster because there is no long dry spell like the west coast of the U.S.A.

A canopy walk circled through the centre of the forest and although it was informative and gave a unique view of the forest, it wasn’t worth the $25 admission.

Walking at ground level was free and gave a similar awe inspiring view and feel to the unique forest.
