A guidebook for visitors and Aucklanders alike, Wild Auckland details over 100 places of exceptional beauty and fascinating natural history which can be found in suburban streets and along country roads. In addition to details of individual places, the book tells you how to get there, the facilities available and `nature features' that can be identified along the way, making it a simple, yet effective, guide book with entries arranged according to geographic location. The book includes two 8-page colour inserts with photos and captions which cross reference to page numbers and entries. It identifies unique flora and fauna, natural features of the lanscape and tips on where to go and what to see throughout the wider Auckland region. Auckland writer Peter Janssen is a keen outdoorsman; he has travelled and photographed extensively throughout New Zealand and is continually researching, track-testing and adding to a resource of over 700 individual walks nationwide. Peter has rediscovered a fascination for Auckland and the dramatic landscape of the city in his research to uncover over 100 wild places for this book. Wild Auckland is up-to-date and well researched, the ideal handbook to explore natural places in and around Auckland city.
