The Waipoua Sanctuary was created in 1952 to protect 9105 hectares (22,762 acres) of un-logged forest. This came to be because of public pressure during the 1940s when the New Zealand public became aware that the State Forest Service was cutting kauri at Waipoua forest.
Several organizations secured 50,000 signatures to Parliament in a wheelbarrow. Its hope was that 160 km² at Waipoua should be set aside for all time, inviolate from interference by man. Other petitions followed, and on 2 July 1952 an area of over 80 km² was proclaimed a forest sanctuary.


 

Most accommodation providers on the Kauri Coast have a display of literature about the area, they can advice you about local dining, places to see and things to do, even book your activities for you. We have more than 60 activities on the Kauri Coast. Please ask your hosts for details
