Native forest, tidal estuaries with life-giving mangroves (manawa), open paddocks, coastal views, shady pöhutukawa and a Mäori pä site – this easy, one hour perimeter walk around the park has it all. Take the short detour to the lookout and you will be rewarded with expansive views to Waiheke Island and the inner Hauraki Gulf.
