Day two hundred and thirty eight: Muriwai Gannet Colony

IMG_1699A visit to Muriwai’s clifftop gannet colony has to be one of Auckland’s best free activities. The 40 minute drive from Auckland is well worth the effort. Over 1200 pairs of gannets nest during the peak of the season, which runs from November through to March. No visit to the colony would be complete without some exploration of Muriwai beach and a swim if the sun is out.
