Explore all the outdoor adventures that Auckland has to offer with Gratia. Sometimes, if you live in Auckland, it gets hard to see past the city, the suburbs – the traffic! It sometimes feels like you couldn’t be further from the great outdoors. But this is only an illusion – Auckland has a huge amount to offer when exploring the outdoors; just take a step back from the city.
Within an hour’s drive you can visit some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. You can go boating and fishing in the Hauraki Gulf and Manukau Harbour. You can go for a hike in the native forests of the Waitakere or Hunua Ranges, visit one of several amazing native bird or marine reserves or head to Matakana for an idyllic day away.
If you can’t quite escape from the city but are in need of an outdoor adventure, Gratia covers this as well. Try walking up Mangawhau (Mt Eden), around the Auckland Domain, Mangakiekie (Cornwall Park), Devonport or along Tamaki Drive. And if you’ve found the perfect day-hike for a Sunday and are thinking of the best place to grab an ice cream, coffee or lunch afterwards, we’ve thought of this, too.
