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.
The full day excursion goes first to the Arataki Visitor Centre situated within Auckland's largest Regional Park, Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. 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 rainforest where experienced guides will explain about the local flora and fauna with giant tree ferns growing alongside picturesque streams. Next your guide will take you out to the west coast to enjoy a kiwi-style picnic lunch at a scenic location. After lunch walk the cliff top tracks with stunning views along the coast and out across the Tasman Sea. Then walk in the regenerating rainforest with giant tree ferns and palm trees growing alongside the picturesque stream to unwind by a spectacular cascading waterfall. Venture on to an awe-inspiring west coast beach where you can stroll along the soft black sand, watch the surf waves crashing in and feel the clear ocean breeze.
