Photographer's Note

Welcome - Haere Mai
This is Long Bay Beach, Te One-roa-o-Kahu
North Shore, Auckland
New Zealand, Aotearoa


Long Bay beach is only 8 kms north of where I live at Murrays Bay. It is one kilometre long and is a very popular setting for many activities. Long Bay is a great place to bring the family for fun at the beach, and is less than half an hour痴 drive from Auckland city. During the week, especially when the tide is out, you will see people walking, running, and dog-walking along the beach.

Walking tracks: The coastal walk offers panoramic views of the Hauraki Gulf, native bush, farmland, sand-dunes, an estuary and rock pool sea-life.

Picnics: There are several bookable picnic sites at Long Bay, one of which can hold up to 500 people.

Swimming: This is usually a safe swimming beach.

Playground: There is a playground and a miniature train at Long Bay.

History: The name given to Long Bay beach by its Maori occupants was Oneroa, which means long expanse of sand. The area that includes Oneroa had been occupied by the Maori since before 1400. Much later, the land was farmed by the Vaughan family until it was purchased in 1965 by the Auckland Regional Council.

Distance from Auckland: 25 kms (30 mins drive)
