This interesting and very historic part of Auckland in the North Island is still mainly rural. The farms surround the largest harbour in the Southern Hemisphere. Our cruise captain was very informative and gave an interesting talk on the history. I was amazed to hear that many sailing ships entered over the dangerous entrance to this harbour in the early days to take on cargos of Kauri timber. Our 5 hour trip included a lunch stop at Shelly Beach for either a picnic or fish and chips at the café.
