Kuriwhakapapa Park

A lovely natural park with real 'bush' (which in NZ terminology means rough natural vegetation). Only birds singing and streams gurgling. Old trees and ferns.

Ancient trees , some still standing

Some fallen a couple of hundred years ago

Pristine streams

Sometimes a grand daugter Lily in the streams :-)

And a tired Nana Jill after 2km

Beautiful photos, CD. They remind me of many areas here in Australia which isn’t really surprising since we are so close to NZ. :sunglasses:

There are a lot of places in Australia that I remember with great nostalgia, particularly up in Queensland. It seems so long ago (1961) although we did visit Sydney in 2007 and enjoyed it.

Looks like a lovely place, even if I for one will never get my tongue around its name!

Well Andere think of it from kuri = dog, whakapapa= family history. So maybe a dogs family, (don't ask me why! :mrgreen:
