Discover lush native bush, dramatic black sand beaches and stunning views over Auckland’s spectacular West Coast on an afternoon eco tour.

Hop on board your small group coach tour in downtown Auckland and head west into the city’s largest regional park, Waitakere Ranges Regional Park.

Perched high in the Waitakere Ranges is the Arataki Visitor Centre, where you'll find breathtaking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea, back across the city to the Pacific Ocean. Hear about the stories and secrets of the Waitakere Ranges and admire the powerful Māori carvings that stand guard over the centre.

Your guide will take you along easy walking tracks through the native rainforest. Listen out for birdsong as you walk amongst magnificent kauri trees and giant tree ferns. Learn about New Zealand's unique flora and fauna, evolved over millions of years in our remote island nation.

Auckland’s black sand beaches are famous for their wild, remote beauty. Feel the black sand of Piha beneath your feet and marvel at the forces of nature at play as the surf crashes down on the shore.

After your West Coast experience, return to the hustle and bustle of central Auckland.
