you want birds, animals, sea, farm, walking, then take an hour or 3 to picnic or just visit. Healing and refreshing and full of stories

We spent one night in our motorhome at Ambury campsite. Given it's proximity to town and the airport, you'd be hard-pressed to find a prettier setting. As it's a working farm, the campsite is near to goats, sheep and other farm animals. The facilities are basic (only long drops in the campsite), but there are flushing loos and pay-for showers...

Nice ambience No showers in the overnight section. Use the toilet/showers in the general park. Close to Auckland and the airport.

We had a few hours to kill before our flight from Auckland and read about the park at our airport hotel. It was a lovely spot to round off our holiday in New Zealand. We enjoyed looking at the animals and doing the circular walk.

Ambury Regional Park is only 15 km from Auckland city centre but when you are at the park it is like being in the country side. You would not think that there is about 1million people living on your door step. Because Ambury is a farm park you will find lots of farm animals in the park. Sheep, cattle and... More

Took the kids there and we had a great morning - you can stroll freely through the paddocks between the animals in most cases, watch the cows being milked at 10am and also see some of the work being done around the farm. A couple of farm walks to be done with older children and some nice areas to have... More

The Ambury Farm has various animals to see and touch. We have been there several times with our grandson. He enjoed the chicken, laughed at the ugly turkey and even touched the big pig! You can enjoy a coffee there or bring your own picnic. Best of all, there is no charge!

This is a council owned working farm where you can interact with the animals. Great for kids under 10. There are some free demonstrations and activities at various times. Check Auckland Council website for details. Close by there is also Mangere Mountain, a dormant volcano summit which is an easy walk to the top, with great views over the Manukau... More
