Shakespear is one of over 30 Regional Parks in the Auckland Region. Shakespear is a farm park (lambs in Spring!) with three safe sandy beaches with the advantage of being north and south facing – if it’s windy at one, it’s likely to be sheltered on another.

When we planned this weeks pick-your-own adventure and our daughter asked what kind of apples there would be and then answered her own question with "oh I know, we can check the stickers on them!" we knew this trip to an orchard was long overdue!

Tawhitokino is a small secluded coastal regional park about 50 minutes east of Auckland city. It is only accessible by foot (or by boat!) by walking around the rocks at low tide and then up over the headland. Its worth the adventure as you will have the beautiful sweeping beach of golden sand fringed by shady pohutukawas pretty much to yourself!

Duder Regional Park is a beautiful coastal farm park in Auckland’s east – and 40 minutes from the CBD. A peninsula sitting out in Tamaki Strait, Duder has wonderful views over undulating farmland, back towards the city and then over the inner Hauraki Gulf islands and out toward Coromandel Peninsula.

Tawharanui is the jewel in the glittering Auckland Regional Park crown with white sand beaches, rolling hills and regenerating native coastal forest. And at under 90 minutes from Auckland City, Tawharanui is a great day trip.

Mahurangi Regional Park straddles both sides of the beautiful Mahurangi Harbour. The park is divided into two parts: Mahurangi East which is only accessible by sea and Mahurangi West which can be reached by car, 55 minutes north of Auckland City. We visited Mahurangi West with three sheltered pohutakawa fringed beaches that are perfect for swimming at any tide.
