Muriwai Beach


One day late, but I really wanted to take part in this

I would like to show you the magic of Muriwai beach, not far from my house, and beautiful even on a gray day. 










A seal!

The gannets colony







And in case you live in Auckland and are interested in food, Slow Food Waitakere is organizing a croissant workshop with Gourmet Gannet in Muriwai. Click here for details.

  1. Thanks for taking part in Blog4NZ Alessandra. It's been a fantastic event with so many high quality posts promoting New Zealand. Your pictures portray our nature at its best- simple but unique.
    And I never knew gannets roosted at Muriwai Beach. I had thought Cape Kidnappers was the Southern Hemisphere's only mainland rookery.Thanks for enlightening me. .
