Subject: New Zealand movies

If you preview The Piano before your trip to New Zealand you can then visit Kare Kare Beach and see where the opening scenes from the movie were shot. This beach, along with Piha and Muriwai beaches, are just to the west of Auckland on the Tasman Sea. Add a visit to the lush watershed of the Waitakere Range that separates Auckland from these beaches and you have a nice day excursion from the city.
