North Shore Rock Formations

North Shore Rock Formations

Shoreline rock formations and cliffs are a feature of the entire North Shore Coastal Walk / Te Araroa, but the section between Campbells Bay and Murrays Bay is almost entrancing. Once the tide is out, you will see a series of modest sized rock platforms that run from the path down to the shoreline, sometimes interspersed by golden sand. But almost all of these platforms are different, having been eroded and smoothed to take on their own individual form. Throw in colour variations to complete the picture.

As you can see, we got a bit carried away with our rock shots! Definitely one of those times when a bit of geology knowledge would have been useful.
