Cosseys Dam/Wairoa Dam Hunuas, South Auckland

  • 8 Apr 2018
  • 8:30 AM
  • The Strand, Takapuna
Enjoy a trip to the western side of the Hunuas, linking up two very picturesque reservoirs and also taking in the magnificent Hunua Falls. The Hunua Ranges comprise NZ’s basement rock, known as greywacke, which was uplifted several million years ago with volcanic explosions finally cooling to form basaltic lava plugs. The falls are one of the best examples of this, where the water falls over the remnant of a lava plug.

Don’t forget to bring your camera as you explore part of Auckland’s largest forested landscape.

Depart: 
8.30 am The Strand, Takapuna

The Shore to Shore run is also on Sunday morning.  It won't  affect the trip as it starts at 9am and goes along Takapuna Beach on the way to Milford.
