West Auckland Car Hire
West Auckland Tour with Marquee Limousines lets you experience all of its beauty in comfort and luxury. West Auckland is a beautiful place, and it’s full of things to do for families, outdoorsy types, and anyone who wants to explore the natural side of Auckland.
You’ll find everything from beaches and caves to wineries and waterfalls within an hour’s drive of downtown Auckland. It’s the perfect way to explore the city!
We recommend you start at Kumeu—it’s just 15 minutes from downtown Auckland by car. Here you can visit Rangitoto Island, which is a popular hiking spot because it offers stunning views of both Auckland City and Rangitoto Island itself. If you’re more interested in exploring caves than hiking, check out Waitakere Ranges (also 15 minutes away). Hike through caves with glowworms native only to New Zealand!
Kaipara Harbour is another great option if you want something less strenuous. This area has plenty of beaches—including West Coast Beach—and museums where you can learn more about the local Maori culture.
No matter what kind of trip you’re looking for, West Auckland has something special waiting for you!
