Gumdiggers Park – Northland


Gumdiggers Park is an authentic Kauri Gum digging site over 100 years old.
Maori, European & Dalmatian people formed this now forgotten gum digging culture and provided the basis for one of the biggest industrial booms in New Zealand’s history.
40,000 to 150,000 year old Buried Kauri Forests have been exposed by the gum diggers. Information spots and an audio visual presentation describe the cataclysmic events which could have caused their destruction. Experience our new Stairway to the Past

A Gumdiggers’ village, equipment & recreated shelters are on display as well as a Gecko house and much more. MORE
