Plan and prepare
Help stop kauri dieback
Kauri dieback disease is killing our native kauri. It spreads by soil movement, but you can help prevent it.
- Stay on the track and off kauri roots.
- Clean your gear before and after visiting kauri forests.
Visit the kauri dieback website for more information on how you can help.
- No dogs or fires due to risks to wildlife.
- Please take care when you leave the State Highways as you will be travelling on unsealed roads.
