    There are caves located in the forest, the Okupata caves are located off state hwy 47 and turn in to john mcdonald road then left onto Pukehinau road and follow the signs to the caves the caves are a stream bed and a lot of debris gets washed through the cave system and is prone to flooding in heavy rain so pays to only enter with a guide.
