“Shame it was raining”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Fantastic views and scenery, I think it would have been even better if not for the weather. We would have liked to spend more time there.

“Nice place”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Range forest and fresh water lake looks great and peaceful. From top, the forest looks like green bed. A must visit place.

“Auckland City Walk, glow worms”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

recommend doing this walk (approx. 20 minutes one way, from one car park to the next) after sunset, to experience the magic of glow worms! it's also beautiful by the light of the full moon, however, the gates close after dark (summer and winter times vary) so glow worm enthusiasts would need to park outside the gates and walk a bit further. well worth it, though!

“Unsure How To Review This One”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

The title is so as there is much to do here and much to see. A multitude of beaches and a multitude of hiking trails (some along the coast, some with waterfalls). It's also a nice place to take a drive and sight-see as well.

Perhaps one should visit the NZ Regional Parks website for more information and perhaps guidance on where to specifically visit first.

“An amazing Place”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

If you like the outdoors, bush tracks, wildlife and secluded west coast beaches then a visit to the Waitakere Ranges is a must. There are many different places to start from and a visit to the visitors centre is well worth while.
