The Ark on New Zealand map


The Ark in the Park is situated in the Waitakere Ranges, which rise from the black sand surf beaches of the west coast of the Auckland area. New Zealand's west coasts stand in the path of the prevailing cool moist winds, and receive frequent rain. In the Waitakeres the northern kauri forest is combined with a mixed podocarp and broadleaf forest to form a uniquely varied rain forest ecosystem
