Pukorokoro-Miranda


Pause to celebrate nature.

Miranda is a small settlement located about an hour's drive from Auckland, near the Firth of Thames on the Seabird Coast. Journey through one of the most important ecological coastal and wetland areas for shorebirds in New Zealand. 

With nearly half of the popularion of the endemic Wrybill found at Miranda, and over 100 migratory bird species gracing the western shores of the Firth of Thames, the Pukorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre is a mandatory stop for any birdwatcher passing by. Look out for Godwits who arrive in October, making the shell flats home before migrating back to Alaska and Russia in March. 

South of here is the the natural Miranda Hot Springs which caters for young and old. Make sure to stop off for a dip and you will leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated in no time. Make a weekend of it and stay at the award-winning Miranda Holiday Park which offers a range of holiday accommodation options in beautifully landscaped surroundings.
