Kauri Glen Bush Society
Kauri Glen Reserve is located in Northcote, North Shore, about 2kms north of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. It is bounded by Onewa Road, Lake Road, Raleigh Road, Ocean View Road and Birkenhead Avenue, with at least 8 entry points: Kauri Glen Road, Gladstone Road, Paruru Avenue, Mahuta Grove, Woodside Avenue, Holdaway Avenue, Raymond Terrace, and Tui Glen Road. The tracks are well laid out and reasonably easy to walk, with some steps to navigate in all directions. Most tracks can be walked comfortably even after wet weather. Kauri, (some up to 400 years old), totara, taraire, tawa, rewarewa, maire, and many other native trees & shrubs can be found. There are a number of creeks and streams draining into an area of swampy land which has recently had a substantial boardwalk system added to the already extensive tracks. Glow-worms live on the banks and native eels, fish and crayfish inhabit the waters throughout the reserve.
