The Tararua Forest Park, where we were yesterday, is 116,535 hectares in size, the largest conservation park in the North Island that is managed by the Department of Conservation. There are many huts, tramping tracks, camping areas, and dense bush, tall trees and wildlife for all to enjoy. Field Hut, 2.5 hours from where we were, was built in 1924, the first photo was taken in 1930, the other more recently.
Mt Holdsworth, 1475metres high, is one one of the tramping tracks,, but in winter conditions can be dangerous, Freezing temperatures, blizzard winds, and fog.The trig stands out, with some snow still hanging onto the wood.All these Tararua Forest Park photos courtesy of the Internet.
