A half day out at our rugged west coast with its spectacular black sand beaches and native bush will blow the cobwebs away.


Get out of the city and off the beaten track! Passing through Titirangi, the artisan village gateway to the Waitakere Ranges, we will take you through lush native forests to the Arataki Visitors Centre look-out.

Then it's on to beautiful Piha, to take in the sea air and watch experienced surfers in action, and then experience the breath-taking solitude at Karekare, where we'll take a short walk to a treasured bush waterfall.
