Rainforest and Gannet Colony

No 8 Tours for NZ Shore Excursions

We are committed to ensuring you leave New Zealand as much in love with this beautiful country as we are.

On this 6 hour day tour from downtown Auckland we head to the rainforest and beaches beyond the fringe of the city. First we drive through the pretty village of Titirangi on the edge of the rainforest, then we continue to the Arataki Visitor Centre with its stunning Maori carving and views of the lush forest and coastline. Next we visit the idyllic Karekare waterfalls before continuing our forest drive to the coastal town of Piha. Our rainforest drive opens to the spectacular and rugged coastline with its black sand beaches and the Tasman Sea beyond. We continue northwards to Muriwai for breathtaking views of the coast stretching into the distance. We take a walk along the cliffs to the impressive Gannet Colony for a close up look at these beautiful sea birds nesting. Then we walk down past some spectacular rock formations to the black sand beach. On our way back to Auckland we stop at a vineyard for some wine tasting or a real fruit ice cream. A memorable day.

This tour includes an easy native rainforest walk and a beach walk. Please wear comfortable walking shoes.
