Kauri Dams

Great Barrier Island

The kauri dam was tragically washed away in one of the biggest storms to hit Great Barrier Island in recent times (June 2014). Before the storm hit it was being in the process of being rebuilt, but now, it may be lost forever. Images do still exist, one example here.

Kauri dieback is a disease that kills most, if not all the native Kauri trees it infects. Whenever you enter or leave a forest area please clean all soil off your footwear and other gear and then disinfect. Cleaning stations are provided in many locations around Great Barrier Island for this purpose. Please stay on the designated tracks to help prevent the spread of this disease. More Hints & Tips
