Cascade Kauri, Lake Wainamu and Fairy Falls are located in the northern part of the Waitakere Ranges and offer great places to explore. See giant Kauri trees, huge sand dunes and spectacular waterfalls. Walk through ancient forests and along picturesque streams.
In the Cascade Kauri area you will discover excellent examples of large kauri, many over a hundred years old surrounding the Waitakere stream. Adjacent to this are pleasant and expansive picnic areas and a golf course.
You can walk the Montana Heritage Trail - an 8km track that provides access to the largest remaining stand of mature kauri in the Auckland region. A partnership between Montana Wines Limited and the ARC has lead to a loop trail that is fast becoming an iconic Waitakere Ranges walk.
