    Mangawhai Heads (2) & Goat Island

    March 29, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    In Mangawhai war ich ganz am Anfang mit Juli, nachdem sie mich vom Flughafen abgeholt hatte. Im Gegensatz zum letzten Mal hatte ich heute strahlenden Sonnenschein. Allgemein habe ich die letzten Tage echt Glück mit dem Wetter, ich hoffe das hält noch ein Weilchen so an. Ich hab also nochmal den Mangawhai Heads Coastal Walk gemacht und bin dann weiter zur Goat Island, wo ich auch ein bisschen am gewandert bin. 🏃Read more

    Goat Island Marine Reserve

    December 3, 2015 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Nejstarsi marine reserve na NZ je nazvana podle ostruvku, co lezi nedaleko od jejich brehu. Na kozim ostrove pry ale kozy nikdy nebyly (pojmenovavali tak driv vsechny male ostruvky, na kterych se bezne kozy "vysazovaly", aby slouzily za potravu pripadnym ztroskotavsim namornikum). Zato tu bylo par prasat, co zahy preplavala zatoku a pripojila se ke svym puvodnim majitelum ;-).
    Prochazka na utes nad rezervaci vede kolem Discovery centra Aucklandske univerzity. Asi zajimave, ale uctuji si 9$. Podle me by melo byt edukacne zdarma :-(.

    Goat Island

    March 12, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    First stop was Whangarei Falls. Quite a pretty waterfall and walk. Nice being able to make these impromptu stops now that rain has held off.

    Original plan was to hire kit and dive at Goat Island but we didn't arrive until afternoon so too late to arrange. The water didn't even look good enough for us to warrant getting snorkle gear out even though there were quite few in the water I think we've now just been far too spoilt with what we get wet in.

    Goat island is a very beautiful area, although the road we took getting down to it was precarious to say the least. The island is even close enough to swim out to, but we were happy exploring the area on foot. The rock pools were filled with crystal clear water. Lots and lots of beautiful shells but not much evidence of other life.
