The Hooker Valley Track is one of the most accessible tracks in the area, and it’s views are incomparable. The track meanders up the valley, crossing suspension bridges and glacial streams, before ending at Hooker Lake, with reflections of Aoraki, Mt Cook. In winter, the lake may be icy or have icebergs floating on the still water. It was the most beautiful winter scene.

Due to the global pandemic, international travel has almost come to a complete stop. Countries have closed their borders and those that have economies based on tourism are struggling. More than ever, the idea and notion of local travel is critical to keeping small tourism businesses alive, providing jobs for people and ensuring that the economy keeps going.  Let me tell you what local travel is and through this 3 part series, you’ll learn how important it is.

What Is Local Travel: All You Need To Know

The idea of local travel is about taking trips closer to home - within your neighbourhood, city, region and country. Travelling locally is easier, cheaper and better for the planet, while still getting all the benefits of an overseas holiday.

After tackling Auckland’s Te Henga Walkway, it’s fair to say it’s now one of my favourite walks in the region. The track stretches from Bethells Beach to Muriwai and meanders along the coastal cliffs. Looking out across the Tasman Sea, the walkway has stunning lookout points as you see the wild waves crashing on black sand beaches, at the bottom of the cliffs and along the Western coastline.

Auckland's Hidden Gems: The Te Henga Walkway

“Spectacular” would be a big understatement for this Waitakere track. It immediately became a favourite of mine and the scenery is incomparable. Here is my review of one of Auckland’s finest gems.

There are two lakes at the end of the track - Lower Tama Lake & Upper Tama Lake. There are six volcanic craters and three of these create the lakes. Two craters form Upper Tama Lake, creating a horseshoe shape & one crater forms Lower Tama Lake. The lakes are freshwater and oh, so clear. The blue and green hues of the lakes are absolutely stunning. We even got a few moments with absolutely no wind on the surface of the lake, it looked as smooth as glass!
