Reviewed 26 August 2014

Omg, Waitakere is just plain awesome! The dense shades of green, the little rivers in between, plenty of space to stroll, walk, hike, jogging, taking pictures - and just breathe. After some days or weeks in AKL this makes for a terrific break from the city.

“HIkes and Piha Beach have some beautiful views”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Lots of trails to hike and Piha Beach and Lion Rock are stunning especially at sunset. Beautiful waterfalls all throughout the forest.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This area so close to the city but absolutely gorgeous. The visitor centre was interesting but the flora is incredible. Great photo opportunity where the scene is framed for you.

Vevo Cafe in Titirangi Village worth visiting. The Village has a great cafe scene and there are many choices.

“Amazing view, be prepared to trek”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

You'll need good hiking boots, plenty of water and a good camera! The view is amazing! You'll need several hours to wander around, so start early when the temperature is cooler.

It's very picturesque and you can easily spend a good few hours here.
