Noice, always good to see people getting in to bushcraft and stuff. I think there are a few good bush locations around Auckland. Check out the bushcraft map of NZ. (Go to the home drop down menu and you'll find it there)

Good to be here. I'm a wannabe rookie bushcrafter and have been wondering which location would best suite myself and a few friends for our first time. We live in Auckland
