Points of interest along the walk

In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.

Point 1: Awhitu Regional Park Start

From the car park, we followed the gravel road in to the park. We past a small lake then walked through an area where they were trying to breed some fresh water crayfish.

Point 2: Look Out

From the lake you can follow the track or just make your own way around the park. We followed the markers to the look out and a great view of the inner Manukau harbour. It can get a bit windy at the look out so take a warm coat.

Point 3: Walk back along the beach

We then followed the markers down through the coastal scrub the out on to the beach. Again you don’t have to follow the markers you can make your own way along the beach or walk in land.

Point 4: The Old Homesteed

If you don’t mind getting your feet wet just walk along the beach. As you get closer to the car you will come across the club houses for the scouts.Just 700m to go to the car park.
