Wild Auck­land

Walking New Zealand - - Books - By Peter Janssen

The Auck­land re­gion’s mild cli­mate, rich soil and plethora of re­gional parks, rugged coast­lines and in­ner city green spa­ces mean you don’t have to ven­ture far to en­joy na­ture at its best.

Peter Janssen re­dis­cov­ered a fascination for his home­town and its dra­matic land­scape in his re­search to un­cover 125 wild places around the Su­per City.

Grouped into five ar­eas and in­tro­duc­ing seven spe­cial re­gional fea­tures, his book de­tails walks and day trips, im­por­tant flora, fauna and ge­ol­ogy, lists fa­cil­i­ties and pro­vides di­rec­tions. Most en­tries also in­clude ‘na­ture notes’ that take a spe­cific as­pect of the wild area’s nat­u­ral his­tory and de­scribe it in more de­tail.
