Matakohe Kauri Museum


This rural museum is as much of a legend as the kauri it displays. New Zealanders add it to their bucket list, but more often than not find themselves proclaimin­g, “Oh, I've been meaning to go.” This mighty museum is a must-do in the region and the best place to begin a journey on the Kauri Coast. Don't be deceived by the exterior — the museum is enormous. There are 4500sqm of exhibits, including a full-size replica boarding house and sawmill, an 800-year-old kauri slab, 170 chainsaws, and the Rintoul Māori Collection, which houses treasured Māori taonga.
