Introducing Kahurangi National Park

Kahurangi, meaning ‘Treasured Possession’, is the second largest of NZ’s national parks and undoubtedly one of the greatest. Its 452,000 hectares are a hotbed of ecological wonderment: 18 native bird species, over 50% of all NZ’s plant species, including over 80% of its alpine plant species, a karst landscape and the largest known cave system in the southern hemisphere (explored by local caving groups, but only for the experienced).
