West Coast Wilderness Experience - PM Tour AKL-AKL BB2 (1245-1730)

Experience Auckland's spectacular West Coast beaches and native bush on this half day afternoon eco tour.

Just 30 kilometres from downtown Auckland is the city's largest regional park, Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. Travel to the Arataki Centre, perched high in the Waitakere Ranges, where sweeping decks offer breathtaking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Hear about the stories and secrets of the Waitakere Ranges and admire the traditional M?ori carvings that stand guard over the centre.

Experience the power of the wild West Coast as your day tour continues. Auckland's black sand beaches – Muriwai, Bethells, Karekare and Piha – are renowned for their rugged and awe-inspiring beauty. Feel the black sand beneath your feet and marvel at the forces of nature at play as the surf crashes down on the shore.

Accompanied by knowledgeable and experienced guides, immerse yourself in the lush native rainforest and listen out for birdsong as you walk the easy bush tracks amongst New Zealand's famous kauri trees and giant tree ferns.

Following your West Coast experience, return to the hustle and bustle of central Auckland.
