We started off the day by sleeping in and eating at the hotel buffet. Afterwards, we got onto 3 separate busses and toured parts of the Auckland area and visited some pretty cool places. First we went to a rain forest and nature center. We learned about the local wildlife and plant life. Afterwards, we visited a waterfall that took all of our breaths away. Finally we visited a beach and some of us climbed up a part of lion rock, a weird and fascinating geological structure that looked like a lion. Now we are heading off to a restaurant in the sky needle, the tallest structure in Southern hemisphere.
