Waitakere Range Regional Park. Tips (2)

Black Sand Beach of Karekare

See the beach where the Piano was filmed. Just a short 45min or so drive from Auckland CBD in the stunning Waitakere Ranges is Karekare. Beautiful black sand beach set in from dramatic cliffs and stunning scenery.

Visit Waitakere Range Regional Park.

This large Park, 16,000 hectares plus, is wild and wonderful, to the West of Auckland. Plenty of forest, bush and 250km of walking tracks. There is something for everyone to do here.
Walking, Tramping, Picnicking, Swimming, Photography.
I advise that you visit the Arataki Visitor Centre, just 10 mins out of Titirangi on Scenic Drive. Here you can find out information to make your visit to the Park more interesting and worthwhile. As well, you can enjoy the nice views from the decks here.
