About Waitakere Ranges

The Waitakere Ranges are located in the Auckland Region on the dorrstep of Auckland city. The area encompasses hilly terrain covered in native forest as well as some Auckland suburbs and coastal settlements on the boundary. The highest point in these ranges is 474 m (1555 ft) which means it is not a high range. The area is protected in the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park which is administered by the Auckland Council. Within the park lie walks, treks, rocky outcrops, rainforest, waterfalls, beaches, and cliffs as high as 300 m (984 ft).

There are a number of popular coastal suburbs located on the boundary of the park such as Piha, Karekare, and Bethells Beach. The park is a popular location for movies and film. The popular television series Hercules and well as Xena Warrior Princess were filmed here. Oscar winning movie, 'The Piano' was shot at Bethells Beach.
