Abstract:

This popular guide, first published by Godwit in 1997, has been fully revised and updated. Thirteen new sites of interest have been added, along with new images and a stylish, modern new look. The Auckland region has a wealth of features of natural and historic interest. From volcanic cones to fossilised forests, from marine reserves to bird sanctuaries, from pa sites to historic buildings, there are dozens of sites within easy distance of the city that tell the story of the region's natural and historic heritage. A Field Guide to Auckland is a handy and informative guide to over 150 easily accessible places to visit, from Wellsford and Mangawhai in the north to the Waikato river and Miranda in the south, as well as the islands of the Hauraki Gulf. Overviews of rocks and landforms, plants and animals, and history are followed by site-by-site descriptions, grouped geographically - North, North Shore, West, Central, South and Islands. Each site has information on how to get there, facilities, and a detailed interpretation of features of interest. Illustrated with over 250 colour photographs, informative maps and diagrams, this new edition of a popular book will encourage Aucklanders and visitors to get out and explore the numerous attractions the region has to offer.
