ShoreTrips says...

Titirangi, which translates to "Fringe of Heaven," represents the ideal weekend escape for locals.

You decided to explore central Auckland by foot or you just have no interest in the city life. That's totally fine. Auckland is pretty sweet, but, when it comes to New Zealand, it's the memory of the area's natural surroundings that stick in your head. Luckily, Auckland is perfectly situated so that a half day venture to its west coast does a wonderful job of capturing the stunning scenery of the region. Subtropical rain forest, soaring cliffs, roaring surf, and stunning black sand beaches are all just outside of the city!

Your exploration will focus on the area around the Waitakere Ranges subtropical rainforest. An experienced guide will get you away from the masses of New Zealand's largest city and into Auckland's most cherished natural destinations. From stunning black sand beaches to coastal cliff views formed by volcanic activity, you are sure to be amazed by the breathtaking North Island that locals have access to every day. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn about this unique region of the world.

The Arataki Visitor Center will provide you with one of the best views as you gaze back toward Auckland's city center. It's amazing to think that you are just 30 minutes outside of the city. You will go home wishing you had such easy access to such beautiful views.
