The Ark on Auckland map

The Ark lies in the northern part of Auckland's Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. Its eastern boundary is the Scenic Drive, which runs south-east as far as Titirangi, along a ridge from where the ranges drop steeply down towards Waitakere City. Access to the Ark is via the small township of Swanson; the Scenic Drive starts just after leaving the town.
