Omana Farm Walk (Pram Access)
Ngāi Tai lived here for many generations, and built the Ō-Manawatere pā. The pā is a small rectangular area on the cliff edge with a defensive “ring” ditch around the three inland sides.
Ngāi Tai and members of other Hauraki tribes lived on the park when it was part of William Fairburn’s Maraetai Mission Station which included a small school for Mäori from 1837–1842.
Ōmana was part of the mission farm, developed from 1837. It was one of the region’s first farms. As with the surrounding district, the forest was felled for timber. The area was dug for kauri gum and even prospected for gold and silver. The land continued to be farmed from 1837 until 1970, when the Auckland Regional Council (ARC) purchased it for a regional park.
