Piha Day Trip

Piha day trip 30th jan


Piha day trip came and went, but what a day it was.  Meeting at Fort street we all introduced ourselves and headed out towards the West Coast beaches of Auckland. A quick stop at Arataki visitors centre gave us the chance to learn about the Waitakere ranges and all its wildlife including the Kauri tree. An amazing view over both the Manakau and Waitamata harbours was breath taking. From here we wound our way to Piha and the Kitekite falls. The walk up to these falls was beautiful. Birds chirping and not a cloud in the sky. We worked up a sweat and all decided to go swimming in the waterhole at the bottom of this amazing waterfall.

Once everyone had enough it was time for the main event, Piha beach. Piha is a notoriously dangerous surf beach and we all had a safety first speech before getting out to experience it for ourselves. Lucky it was a calm day however the currents were still strong.  After lots of swimming, surfing, fun and sun we all had lunch on the Black sand beach.

A walk up to the aptly named Lion Rock was a must do and allowed us to get some awesome as photos from the top.

Then of course it was time to head back to Auckland for a drink!!!
