Mothers Day Picnic, a lovely sunny day out and about!

Tawharanui Regional Park

Hi again dear readers....

Auckland has been blessed this Autumn with the most stunning weather - long sunny days - without the searing heat of the summer sun. This Mothers Day we set off on a drive up to our favourite spot in the region - Tawharanui Penninsula. Just a short hours drive up state highway 1, Tawharanui is a favourite with many Auckland families in the summer months. On a sunny Autumn day it is the perfect spot for a walk and a picnic.

Tawharanui is a regional park and park rangers and volunteers have managed to free the area of pests and predators - consequently there is now an abundance of birdlife and kiwis.There are many lovely walking tracks long and short. We sat and had our picnic under the shade of the trees before setting off for a short walk to the rocky area  in the photograph.


There are many other things to do on a day out to Tawharanui - lots of interesting cafes and crafty places to visit nearby - well worth the drive for a relaxing day out from Haven Homestay! We LOVE it!!!!

Till next time .............
