Step into the tranquility of the forest and enjoy a guided tour into the beautiful Long Bay Kauri Grove. Our experienced local guides unfold the story of The Coromandel Kauri and the rich history of the area. Make you way through the naturally regenerating rainforest, along the well-formed track with foot bridges and boardwalks which take you right into the heart of this spectacular grove.
The Long Bay Kauri track is treasured by Coromandel Town locals and visitors alike. The one-hour loop track passes by a spectacular 1200-year old kauri, through a regenerating kauri ricker grove and mixed native forest before providing the option of continuing o to enjoy a beautiful coastal walk.
Thanks to the generous funding and support from the Ministry of Primary Industries, Coromandel Kauri Dieback Forum and TCDC, Coromandel Adventures are privileged to be operating a track ambassador and complimentary guided walk programme at Long Bay this Summer.
Our ambassador and guiding team are all local Coromandel people who are committed towards helping to care for kauri and sharing this with others. They will be on site, sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for kauri and answering your questions about how we can all work together to keep kauri safe and healthy so they are here for generations to come. If they are on site for your visit, the ambassadors at the entrance will be keen to answer your questions and help you understand how to use the hygiene stations effectively.
