You can enjoy this park in many ways, walking, swimming, birdwatching, camping and so on. We only a couple of hours there but it is a place that you can stay for a few days.

Fascinating clear water beach. This place is unique in it's own way. Birds, fish, trees everything is a bit different than the other regional parks in auckland. This place definitely worth a visit.

Great walks and views over the harbour back to Auckland. Birds everywhere. Nice beaches (not really for swimming).
