Meet at the Britomart Train Station approximately 6.5-hours prior to sunset. A short 30-minute drive west for from Auckland’s city center are the Waitakere Ranges. Rich in natural and cultural history, this area is today a regional park with more than 61 square miles of native rain forest and rugged coastline.

The hills, up to 1555 feet high (474 meters), are covered in dense rain forest with towering hardwood trees like Kauri, Rimu and Kahikatea and a jungle-like undergrowth. With its volcanic rocks and over 2000mm of rainfall each year, the area has a number of beautiful streams with waterfalls cascading through the forest.
