Coromandel: Waiomu Kauri Grove/Te Puna

Be sure you know everything you need to know before joining us on this trip - trip grading, the gear you need, departure point, emergencies, etc. See the Day Walk info page.

Payment: Please pay in cash on the day if you can – it saves our Club volunteers work. If you forget, don’t worry, we’ll give you the details for an electronic payment.

Return times: Normally 5-7pm, but 6-8pm for trips advertised as “late finish”. However, any trip can be delayed through injury, traffic etc. It’s best not to plan anything for the early evening.

Starting at Waiomu, follow the Waiomu Kauri Grove up through the magnificent kauri grove, with healthy kauri trees and great views. 

Continue up until reaching a junction 650m higher than your starting point. Turn right and a short while later there is a second junction from where you take the Te Puru track, following this back down to Te Puru Creek Rd, with a few river crossings once you are down in the valley.  

Both the ascent and the descent have some steep sections.
