One of the natural beauties of Auckland is the Waitakere Ranges, which offer a bounty of everything nature has to provide and are also a hub of sporting action. For people who like walking or trekking tours, there's a great one through the One Tree Hill, which takes people through volcanic cones.
The volcanic island of Rangitoto is also a must see. You could try to scale the highest peak here from where you get a great panoramic view of the entire area, or you can go swimming and check out the beautiful coral.
