Park or reserve
The Kauaeranga Valley has eight campsites beside the Kauaeranga River. Extensive kauri logging took place here and the native forests you now see are regrowth. The valley has plenty of walks, swimming spots and historic relics from logging days. Other activities include horse trekking, abseiling, rock climbing, fishing, picnicking, hunting and mountainbiking.
