Auckland With A View - A guide to over 50 scenic Walks and day-trips
by Sue Hall
Urban Auckland, larger in area than London, sprawls over a low-lying isthmus whose curvaceous coastline is blessed with dozens of headlands, high volcanic cones and folded mountain ridges. This roller-coaster terrain offers countless viewpoints from the inner city out and from the outer city in over waterways and suburbia, countryside and forest. Sue Hall's book invites you to explore more than 50 of these viewpoints. While enjoying the spectacular scenery you can delve into the geography of the land beneath your feet, and read about the history of its origins and growth and the social changes that have developed with its people. The informative text is complemented by a selection of Sue's sketches and photographs.
