Fodor's Review

Come for the spotless and varied lodging configurations—cabins with or without kitchens, and with or without bathrooms, as well as self-contained apartments; stay for the spectacular nighttime exploration of Trounson Kauri Park that promises looming kauri trees and maybe even a kiwi bird or two. Owners Herb and Heather Iles can point you in the right direction for several outdoor activities. They give guided tours of the park nightly (tours cost NZ$20; reservations essential);

guests frequently spot kiwi on the walks. If you are traveling from the north, you need to turn left off the state highway and onto Trounson Park Road, 3 km (2 mi) before the small village of Kaihu. The holiday park is clearly signposted.
