The For­est:

Let's Travel - - DESTINATION KING COUNTRY -

Pure­ora For­est Park is a 78,000 hectare area of pro­tected for­est that in­cludes some of the largest, most out­stand­ing tracts of New Zealand Podocarp for­est. It was the lo­ca­tion of anti-log­ging protests in the 1970’s that re­sulted in the end of na­tive for­est log­ging, and the per­ma­nent preser­va­tion of the re­main­ing for­est. The area is home to sev­eral en­dan­gered bird species in­clud­ing Kokako, Whio (Blue Duck), Kaka, Kakariki and North Is­land Robin.
