Auckland's coastal rainforest and the Waitakere Ranges are only 30 kilometres from downtown Auckland. In just 30 minutes you leave behind the bustle of the city and step into the tranquillity of the rainforest. Experienced guides unfold the story of the forest that covers this land with its unique flora and fauna.
With Bush & Beach travel west from the central city out to the Arataki Visitors Centre, doorway to the Waitakere Ranges. From its sweeping decks take in the breathtaking panoramic views extending from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean and absorb the area's history while admiring the magnificent traditional Maori carvings that stand guard. Continue further west with the knowledgeable and highly experienced guides to the wild and rugged West Coast where you get to experience the power of nature; feel the black sand beneath your feet as you stroll along one of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer then unwind by a beautiful cascading waterfall. A short journey brings you to lush rainforest where you walk the easy bush tracks amongst New Zealand's giant tree ferns and hear native birds before visiting a magnificent specimen of NZ's famous Kauri trees.
