More about the Jurassic Park Gate

The Waikoko Forest Management Road is also known for its scenic views. The gate itself was a temporary structure and doesn’t exist anymore, but the stunning natural landscape remains largely unchanged. Since the vegetation has changed over the years, it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact location where the gate once stood. The area marked on the map is the most likely position, as this is the only part of the road that is straight and has a bit of clearing.
