We then cross the sand dune again returning to the beach where you explore this vast landscape and unspoilt beauty of this area. Our journey continues to the next Dune crossing where we take an inland 4WD sand track for a few klm's. This takes us through Forest, Lake side and up to another viewpoint where we look down on farmland, forest, beach and sea views.
Once we have returned to the beach via the inland 4WD sand track your scenic journey continues to within about 2 km's of the end of the beach. Past this is the Air Weapons Range controlled by the NZ air force. (Legally no entry at all times)

After growing up in Auckland for over 40 years, I thought I knew most of the great spots around Auckland. How wrong was I. Colin took my family and me on a 4X4 experience up Muriwai Beach and it blew all of us away with just what a special place this is. Driving along a beach for kilometre after kilometre with nothing but wilderness and coastline is quite spectacular and gives you a renewed appreciation of what a special place Auckland is. I would highly recommend this trip. - Jo (Client)
