The Kauri Museum


The award winning Kauri Museum is famous for its hospitality and the legacy left behind by the ancient kauri trees which once covered northern New Zealand. The New Zealand Kauri  (Agathis australis) has cultural significance, to Māori and more recent settlers alike. Their prized timber and gum, formed the industries that shaped modern New Zealand. In addition to preserving our past, the Museum has a role to play in conserving their future, collaborating to “Save our Forests” by raising public awareness to control the spread of the Kauri Dieback disease and promote forest ecology.
