1 Great Day - Private Tour Auckland City - West Coast Nature

Top recommendation 4.8/5
4.8/5

Enjoy on this Private Tour a scenic route from Auckland City into the West Coast Wilderness

 

Explore Muriwai Gannets, spectacular coastlines, black sand beaches and our native bush.

 

We pick you up and go on our journey to the wild West Coast via the wine region and countryside of Kumeu. Our first stop is Muriwai, one of New Zealand’s most spectacular black-sand beaches, nestled between Auckland’s beautiful native rain forest and rock-clashing world-class surf. It’s a short and easy walk up the cliff-tops to the viewing platforms to give you stunning views far over the dramatic coastline of the Tasman Sea. You get up close to the Gannet colony that you can count the eggs and observe the fluffy chicks.

A scenic drive on windy roads through the native bush takes us to one of Auckland’s „Must-Do“ attractions. Here we find ourselves surrounded by the natural beauty one expects to see in New Zealand. It’s a nature-related informative and well presented Visitor Center with superb 360 degree panoramic viewpoints overlooking the Auckland area and subtropical rain forest to the ocean. It’s an educational area in regards to the regions flora, animals, history and culture of the land.

On the way back to the City we will see some Highlights of the City of Auckland.
