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

Thanks very much. I'm a complete newbie looking to get out and about. Living in Upper Hutt, watching lots of youtube videos and starting to gear up. Looking forward to learning from people =)
