“Lovely walks in the ranges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

If you like good walks in beautiful scenery then this is a great place to come. There are different lengths of hikes and something for everyone. You do need to drive out there which is about 30 mins from central Auckland but it is worth it if you want to get away from it all have enjoy the beautiful nature that Auckland has to offer.

“The West Auckland Ranges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Always worth a round trip. We do the visitors centre at the same time for a break before going to a beach to see the waves roll in or the surfers in action.

“Waitakere Ranges (and Piha Beach)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

My first activity in New Zealand was a tour of the Waitakere Ranges and out to Piha Beach with Bush & Beach. The guide was excellent and Piha has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world!

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Fantastic nature walk. It can take a little bit of a drive to get there, but well worth it. I'd love to go for a major trek through the area if I get the chance to return there in the future!!

“Slice of heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Trip from Auckland to the Island relaxing and views breath taking. Island itself diversified with landscape and the number of vineyards and wineries. Opportunities for sampling was plentiful and selection of vineyards bountiful.
