There is a road from Titirangi, West Auckland to go further west. This day we drove out to Huia and there is a very nice cafe to have coffee.
On the way back I stopped at Upper Nihotapu Dam. There is also a lower Nihotapu Dam near Huia. Its of many water supplies for the growing population of Auckland city.
You turn off the road to the Upper Nihotapu Dam access. You cant walk along the Dam area. It has been raining for a while so the Dam is full.
Now the first 2 photos are taken from another journey, from the Arataki Visitor centre in Scenic drive. If any one of you comes to New Zealand and Auckland, this is a must see. A view you won’t forget.
This entire post is taken inside the Waitakere ranges, which gets a lot of rainfall during the year.
