The Pukekohe Stream Track links the Omahuta Sanctuary Road and the ‘Hokianga Tree’ on the Omahuta Kauri Sanctuary Track.
You can glimpse remnants of a kauri dam in the Pukekohe streambed.
10,000 Steps Northland: This track equates to about 4,400 steps.
Puketi and Omahuta Forests are easily accessible from the Hokianga Harbour and the Bay of Islands.
You can access the Pukekohe Stream Track from State Highway 1. It is signposted a few kilometres south of Mangamuka Bridge. Please drive carefully on Omahuta Sanctuary Road – it is very narrow in places. Keep to the main road as side roads often deteriorate quickly.
Nature and conservation
Much of the kauri in the Pukekohe stream area has been logged although vigorous new growth is now occurring.
