Auckland Region

There is no other city in NZ with such an array of close natural wonders. Sometimes hidden behind poor urban design, a small effort yields great rewards.

There are 25 Regional Parks throughout the Auckland region that have lots of walks, picnic areas, safe swimming beaches, historic sites, and places to camp in them. One thing to note though is take extra plastic bags as none of these parks have rubbish bins, you must take your rubbish home. A good place to get a whole bunch of useful information about the regional parks is the Arataki Visitor Centre in the Waitakere Ranges.

Bethells beach on the west coast has a real community feel. There are a few beaches around here to explore – you can walk over the sand dunes to O’Neill’s beach as well (foot access only). The beach is not very safe to swim at; the life guard tower is not manned all the time. There is safe swimming close by at Lake Wainamu. A little shop at the beach sells good looking food; cash only.
