It takes 70 years for water to make its way to this special place. Come show your appreciation of nature’s efforts. 

As you mosey along the easy 15-minute walk from the carpark to the springs at Hamurana consider how long it takes the water to travel underground and finally surface in this pretty setting. While you’re mulling over that, and snapping pics of the surrounding redwood trees, also know that you’re looking at the North Island’s deepest freshwater spring. We told you it was special.
