If you want to be close to Auckland but a bit remote, I would suggest Whatipu. It is in Auckland in the Waitakere Ranges but right on the coast. Lovely campground with lodge to stay or pitch tent in the campground. Basic amenities, need mosquito repellant but breathtakingly lovely, remote and wild. Nice and safe to stay. Can bush tramp or walk the beach, dunes etc. It is a scientific reserve so that the wildlife is protected. Can get all the info that you need on this and other sites on the Auckland regional council ARC website. go to www.arc.govt.nz, click into PARKS and then by region being Waitakere. Have fun and hope that helped. SC
