What people are saying:

Rotorua Redwood Forest Park, located on the south side of Lake Rotorua, covers an area of 55,000 square meters. It was opened to tourists in 1995. Towering ancient trees, shavings and leaves, unique landscapes, and fresh air in the park are must-see spots for visiting Rotorua. I visited the park and left the most impressive 3 attractions. 1. "Seven Fairies" mother and child tree. A giant tree that is uprooted and lying on the ground, on its trunk, grows tenaciously with seven big trees of different thicknesses and straight upwards. They are slim and close together, like seven descending fairies. The most tourists in the park must be the "seven fairies". 2. A giant tree with a diameter of 2.2 meters. Old trees in the park have a diameter at breast height of more than 40 cm. The thickest giant tree with a diameter at breast height of 2.2 meters and a bust of nearly 7 meters requires 4 to 5 big men to hold it together. 3. The canopy trail. Not far from the entrance of the park, a 553-meter long "canopy trail" is suspended in the air. The trail is made up of 22 viewing platforms built between 22 big trees and 23 suspension bridges with a height of 6-12 meters. It is a different kind of enjoyment to stroll on it and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the forest from a different perspective. Tips: Old trees in the park are more than 50 meters high. You must use the "panoramic vertical shooting" mode of photography to take a complete photo of people and trees.

    What an awesome experience

    We went on the night walk last night, what a cool experience! Not that we did the day walk but would definitely recommend walking it at night!

    Forest walks

    A wonderful selection of walks through the spectacular redwood forest. Most of the walks are relatively flat and easy. If you want a bit of a climb, take the quarry lookout trail. Great to see so ...

    Day or Night is the way to go!

    This is an very unique experience and day or night (we did both) gives you a different perspective of the tall trees. David Trubridge's lanterns are beautiful with the light display filtering though t...

    Great walk in the forest canopy

    would love to come back at night as I've heard its magical. It's a safe activity even for the little ones.
