The Kauri Museum tells the Remarkable Story of The Greatest Tree in New Zealand.
The kauri tree, Agathis australis, is New Zealand’s largest and most famous native tree. Located midway between Auckland and the Bay of Islands in the warm north of the country, the Kauri Museum tells some of the stories of this amazing tree.
Far more than a museum of timber, the Museum has stories of the Maori of the north eastern Kaipara, of European pioneers, of foresters and sawmillers, gum diggers and farmers, and of business people, fishers and the families who have made this area their home.
Explore the Museum’s website – including virtual tours – for a taste of its many displays and galleries, from the magnificent collection of antique kauri furniture to the operational machinery wing.
Whether you are from New Zealand or overseas, history buffs, families, groups or from a company looking for a unique venue for team visits, make sure to visit the Kauri Museum. It’s remarkable!
