Hukutaia Domain is 4.5 hectares of native bush remnant, featuring ancient Puriri trees, mighty Tawa, and many varieties of ferns, moses and fungi. It provides a glimpse of how the local area looked before culitvation of the land changed the landscape.
A highlight is the magnificent Taketakerau burial tree, a 2000-year-old puriri used in ancient times by the Upokorehe iwi.
Easy to find with plenty of parking and also has Restrooms. Just a short drive from Opotiki. An easy walk so take your time, listen to the birds and stop and have a good look at the huge puriri tree and enjoy this lovely peaceful spot to be in.
