Welcome to Friends of Hunua Ranges

Supporting and assisting the protection and use of the unique Hunua Ranges

We will be working alongside Auckland Council and hope to have the involvement of anyone and everyone who uses the Hunua Ranges – there are a lot of users, from forestry and Watercare to recreation groups and individuals to hunters and DOC. Any users who would like to be part of the Friends, let us know!

Great to see the opening of the new reception/office area at the Kokako Lodge (near the Hunua Falls), a much-needed improvement. The Lodge is a wonderful 85 bed facility right next to all the activities by the Falls.  See www.kokakolodge.org.nz

Anyone looking for a research project?

How about the relationship between native bees and the forest and the impact of Varroa mite?

If you are going to the Ranges, please be careful and follow instructions posted in the area about Kauri Dieback disease. This is a deadly disease, killing kauri trees throughout the Auckland region.  The Hunua Ranges are currently a healthy kauri area - help us keep it this way.
