Full Day including Lunch
Price from £131 per person
Auckland’s day tour company 'Bush & Beach' takes you on a full day guided tour to Auckland’s wild, black sand beaches and lush rainforest. Spend the day walking and relaxing in the real New Zealand while hearing the stories of this region.
A Bush & Beach vehicle will pick you up from your inner city hotel to commence a full day excursion out to Auckland’s untamed and unpredictable West Coast. First stop is the Arataki Visitor Centre situated within Auckland’s largest Regional Park, the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. The breathtaking panoramic views from the sweeping decks extend from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Absorb the area’s history and admire the magnificent traditional Maori carvings that stand guard. Continue further west to the wild and rugged West Coast, where you will experience the area's isolation. Guides walk participants through part of Auckland’s coastal rainforest while explaining about the local flora and fauna. Then stroll on an awe-inspiring, rugged West Coast beach and feel the soft black sand and breathe the clear ocean breeze before enjoying a kiwi-style picnic lunch at a scenic location. Your journey then takes you to an area of untouched original rainforest with mature 1000-year-old kauri trees. A moderate level of walking ability is required for walks of up to 1 hour duration.
