forest to alpine herbfields. Rainfall is high ranging from 1150 mm in the
surrounding plain to 6500 mm at Dawson Falls on the mountain. At the park
boundary, at 550 m, the broadleaf/ podocarp forest is dominated by kamahi (
Weinmannia racemosa), but also present are tawa (Beilschmiedia tawa), miro
(Prumnopitys ferruginea), hinau (Elaeocarpus dentatus), rimu (Dacrydium
cupressinum) and rata (Metrosideros robusta). The upland forest continues

kotukutuku (Fuschia excorticata) orihou (Pseudopanax colensoi). At 900 m
kamahi begins to be replaced by Hall
