Points of interest along the walk​

Point 1: Te Puna Quarry Carpark

The car park is massive, at the bottom of the car park you will find the toilets in the back of the new building.
walk up to were the old digger is parked and you will see a map of the Te Puna Quarry Park.

Point 2: Second toilet

Make your way to the Amphitheater and them walk up the hill for 3 minutes, there they are on your right.

Point 3: Top Of Te Puna Quarry

It took us 30 min to reach the top of Te Puna Quarry, but we did get a little side tracked along the way, there are so many side track to different gardens so just take your time and enjoy the walk.
At the top there is a assailing wall if you feeling adventurous, then there is the Lion steps, not many but the view is good.
Walking down hill to the car park is a good descent, plus it can be a little slippery on a wet day.
