How to get there: Ark in the Park


Continue through Swanson. At the turn-off to Waitakere follow the Scenic Drive up and under the rail bridge. After reaching the top, continue along the flat until you see Te Henga Road branching off to the right. 

Cascades Kauri Park is the main entry to the Ark in the Park. It is situated approximately 5 minutes drive from Swanson, which is approximately 25 minutes drive from the centre of Auckland.

The road becomes unsealed and ends in a large car park, from where visitors can take the lovely and well maintained Auckland City Walk. This is a loop track, which generally takes around 45 minutes to complete. There is no public transport to the Cascades Kauri Park.
