Before heading into the heart of the Waitakeres you should head into the Arataki Visitor Centre. It's a great place to discover more about the ranges and the unspoilt beaches that lie ahead ! A mine of information is readily accessible. You can also undertake a fantastic 1 hour nature walk to experience the surrounding rain forest at close range ! 360 degree views await you. This picture was taken at the front of the Arataki Visitor Centre. This 11 meter high Pou (guardian post) represents ancestors of Te Kawerau a Maki and is one of the largest of its kind in New Zealand ! Check out the link list on the right to discover more.
