Auckland West Coast Videos
Less than an hour's drive from downtown Auckland, the wild and rugged beaches of Auckland's west coast is a sight to behold. Piha Beach is the most famous and features the much photographed Lion Rock. Karekare Beach gained international movie fame as the location for 'The Piano' while Muriwai Beach is home to one of only three gannet colonies in New Zealand. The Waitakere Ranges cover 40,000 acres of rainforest and coastline, with 250km of walking tracks.
