You wouldn't think this is Auckland if you're an Aucklander. This place is beautiful and easy to walk. There are some muddy areas but if you're prepared for that, it is full of fun.

You can enjoy this park in many ways, walking, swimming, birdwatching, camping and so on. We only a couple of hours there but it is a place that you can stay for a few days.

Fascinating clear water beach. This place is unique in it's own way. Birds, fish, trees everything is a bit different than the other regional parks in auckland. This place definitely worth a visit.
