The Waitakere National Park is 16,000 hectares of native forest and coastline, and includes 250km of walking tracks. It was the first National Park in NZ. In 1894 a group of university scientists persuaded the Auckland City Council to preserve 3,500 acres (14 km²) as a bush reserve, and in 1895 the national Government vested the land as "reserves for the conservation of native flora and fauna".
The NZ forest is basically colourless aside from all shades of green and brown. But the textures are very beautiful.
