    Takapuna Beach
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    From our meeting point we’ll jump into some pre-ordered ubers and make our way across the bridge, soaking up stunning views of our harbour, city and volcanoes as we go. After a ten minute ride out of the city we’ll arrive at a small yet enchanting slice of native bush that even many locals don’t know about. It's an elevated bush walk and if we're lucky we'll start to hear and then see Tui in full voice and flight. These guys are singers and mimickers and they have quite a story! You'll learn about native trees, New Zealand bush medicine and wildlife that you may not have seen before. It's stunning natural beauty, and quite peaceful too. After our bush walk we'll head to a beautiful beach and lovely waterside trail. You'll take in local landmarks and natural beauty including our imposing Rangitoto Volcano, our youngest at just 600 years old. It's an intriguing coastal trail, we'll pass through old lava flows, rock pools and wait until you hear the story about the castle we pass by! Finally we'll reach lovely Takapuna beach where this time of year it's an awesome spot for a swim to cool off. We'll finish with a classic Kiwi fish and chips lunch and a beer on the beach.

Had an absolutely wonderful time on this tour with Kate! Got to experience a little bit of everything. Which was great, and still had time left in the day to do other stuff. The beach was phenomenal, and it was nice to have free to time there just to get some relaxation in! A

We spent two days visiting different parts of the CBD of Auckland and to spend part of our last full day walking in a peaceful urban forest filled with the sounds of birds was a perfect ending of our 5 week New Zealand holiday. March 2019
