Muriwai is one of New Zealand's most spectacular black-sand beaches, nestled between Auckland‘s beautiful native rainforest and rock-clashing world-class surf. It‘s a short and easy track up the cliff-tops to the viewing platforms to give you stunning views far over the dramatic coastline of Tasman Sea. You get up close to the colony that you can count the eggs and observe the fluffy chicks.

A scenic drive to one of Auckland‘s „Must-Do“ attractions where we found ourselves surrounded by the natural beauty one expects to see in New Zealand. It‘s a nature-related informative and well presented Visitor Center with superb 360 degree panoramic viewpoints overlooking the Auckland area and subtropical rainforest to the ocean. It's an educational area in regards to the regions flora, animals, history and culture of the land.
