Rangitoto,KareKare and Tane Mahuta

Taking a sightseeing around NZ it is time to look at three special places.
1. Rangitoto- Rangitoto is the youngest Island in New Zealand. It is an Auckland icon and has a lot of history. It has been a favorite place for taking trips, walking, sailing and also discovering many mysteries based on the island and the natives of New Zealand (Maori). 

2. KareKare- KareKare is one of Auckland's most astonishing beaches and forested areas. Karekare beach is located on Auckland's west coast between Piha in the north and Whatipu in the south. Karekare waterfall, known by the Kawerau people as ‘Te Ahoaho' or ‘pendulous white thread', is nestled a short walk from the main beach arrival area.

3. Tane Mahuta- Tane Mahuta is the largest and oldest living kauri tree in New Zealand. Tane Mahuta ('Lord of the Forest') is New Zealand’s largest known living kauri tree.According to Maori mythology Tane is the son of Ranginui the sky father and Papatuanuku the earth mother. Tane was the child that tore his parents apart. As told Tane Mahuta said that it was too cramped between Papatuanuku (Earth mother) and Ranginui (Sky father).

If you were to ask which was my favorite place out of these three then it would be none of them. Why you maybe asking? Well it is cause I love all of these places so I couldn't really chose of which one was the best. So that's the end of this trip and I hope you enjoyed and learnt about these most incredible places.

  1. Kia ora Danielle, I really enjoyed reading your descriptions of these three natural wonders. They are each very special and quite unique and you have done a nice job of introducing them to us. I can completely understand why you would have trouble choosing between the three places for this activity. I, too, would struggle to choose, however, I have an affinity (love) for the water so I would probably choose either Rangitoto or Karekare. I think that the amazing black sand at Karekare might lead me to choose it as my #1 favourite option.

    I hope that you are able to get out to visit Karekare beach one day. There is something pretty special and, almost mystical, about it. I try to go out there every few months and, during winter, the beach is often covered in mist and cloud. It's incredible...

    Speaking of incredible, you're doing a great job with this learning journey. Keep it up! There is a full week left and plenty of activities still to do.

    See you online soon :)
