Our full day excursion goes first to the Arataki Visitor Center situated within Auckland’s largest Regional Park, Waitakere Ranges Regional Park – just a short drive from Downtown Auckland. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views from the sweeping decks extending from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Absorb the area’s history and admire the magnificent traditional Maori carvings.
Then walk in the regenerating rain forest where our experienced guides will explain about the local flora and fauna with giant tree ferns growing alongside picturesque streams. Unwind by a spectacular cascading waterfall or swim beneath it. Venture on to an awe-inspiring west coast beach where you can stroll along the soft black sand and feel the clear ocean breeze.
A kiwi-style picnic lunch is then provided at a scenic location. Your eco-tour ends in an area of untamed original rain forest where mature 1000 year old kauri trees tower over the unique flora and fauna that has developed separately from the rest of the world for millions of years.
