160528 Dargaville 2 Days one night

Dargaville 2 Days one night--Visit the biggest and oldest kauri in Northland. Trace the history of the Chinese ship sank in Hokianga Harbour


In west coast of Northland, there are the biggest & oldest kauri trees in NZ. They are the “God of the Forest” & “ The Father of the Forest”. Kauri die back is a big problem in NZ now. We are going to have a better understanding of kauri Die Back & the way to protect the kauris.

In 1902, a ship organized by the Chinese sank in Hokianga Harbour. We will go and trace that piece of Chinese History.  

We will also visit the famous fresh water lakes –Lake Kai Iwi and two museums. Dargaville museum has some very interesting artifacts from the ships that sunk in Kaipara Harbour. Kauri Museum is the largest Kauri museum in the country. It has a very good display about Kauri logging and kauri gum. It is very worth a visit.
