Excursions and Local Attractions

We live in a beautiful part of Auckland with green bush, bays, amazing beaches (Karekare where 'The Piano' was filmed and Piha are also great for surfing!) and waterfalls. We are a 5 minute bus ride to Titirangi village which has a theatre, gallery, library, bar, cafes and restaurants.
We are a 10 minute drive from the Arataki Visitor Centre with breath taking views of the Waitakere ranges and enjoyable bush walks. Nearby, enjoy a train ride through the native bush and dark tunels filled with glow worms!
Within 2 minutes' walk from our house, you can catch a bus to New Lynn station where there are buses and trains going to the city (30min ride). Auckland City offers many attractions: enjoy a great shopping experience, going to the zoo or museum, bunji jumping for the brave, dolphin watching or boat trips to Devon Port Peninsula, Rangitoto volcano and Waiheke island (well known for its vineyards and wine tasting!). We can also help you organise trips to Waitomo caves and Rotorua.
