“Beautiful and diverse country side”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

If you do a tour with Shane who runs Waitakere Tours like I did it will make for a superb day out. There is so much to see ranging from amazing coastal cliffs, beautiful forests, rivers and waterfalls, lovely beaches and just beautiful untouched country side all around. Highly recommend visiting this area particularly if you love nature and want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city :-)

“Good tramps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The Waitakere ranges is a great place for those who like a challenge for bush walking. You can go to Piha, Karekare, The Cascades, where there is a water fall and the "Auckland walk" which is good for all ages

“Stunning bush walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have done about 15 bush walks mostly 2-4hours in length but there is a walk for every level of fitness. There are both forest or my favorite, costal walks Te Henga is breathtaking. The tracks are well maintained and sign posted, a great way to keep fit.
