A special and stunning spot to visit. Predominantly on leash for dogs, with views of the Manukau Harbour and the local wildlife. Worth a visit, to wander the quiet paths and collect a few avocados, when in season.

Beautiful place!!!! Amazing view! One can observe that black goose immigrate at the location. Its nice to look at! Also, it used to be the cemetery of the first maoris. We can see vestiges of the past. We can observe the Maoris way of building walls with their special techniques to break stones so they dont need cement or things like that to connect the stones together. Its quite impressive!... HOWEVER, Ive been told that it belongs to a big company now. They might built housing and stuff like that in the future. IT IS A SHAME! It should stay untouched. Its an historical site!!!! Some Maori people are there to give you information about the place. They kind of occupy the place and I agree with that to be honest. I would also try to defend my roots!! They have their own houses in the area so they are not trying to squat there or have free land, rent or whatever people might think. They just want to protect their heritage and leave the site untouched!

Very interesting place, with pretty views and nature such as mangrove and birds. You can also pick a few avocados when in season. Not only was this apparently a site of two volcanoes and a old lava like feild, it was also a Maori town settlement before European came and this is evident in the landscape and plants left behind.

Saturday 16/01/21 - locals had closed the road off so no access. NZTA didnt close the road, or it would have displayed on Google maps.

This place is about 2.5 km away from Aucklands main sewage treatment plant that services almost all of the metropolitan area. At a certain stage of the sewage treatment process this place lets off one of the foulest smells that you can imagine. It sticks to your clothes it permeates into your mouth, your nose even through the walls of buildings or vehicles and stays there until youve had a good shower or sprayed liberal amounts of air freshener. It doesnt always smell like that, but it happens on a regular basis. No matter how good the scenery looks youll never want to hang around the place once youve experienced that stench

The long narrow road leading up to the stonefields is a true sight. The protest art is evocative and immediately creates an ambience of mutual respect for the land and your presence . Lovely long trails for walking or biking. I wouldnt recommended going off track its not exciting.
