Stunning views of Auckland city and Auckland harbour, this lovely park has walks, history and geography - great for families, individuals, couples. Not good for wheelchair access but ok for a mountain buggy for young ones. Guests can explore the tunnels free of charge (take your cell phone for a torch), walk around the numerous walking trails, discover a private beach or two, occasionally see a NZ fur seal or little blue penguin and even take some cardboard (your host might have some if you ask) and get the kids to slide down the grassy slopes - great fun for toddlers through to teens.

Entertainment & Activities
There is lots to do in Auckland. The jewel in our crown is our harbour and off shore islands. So if you're here for a couple of days be sure to visit either Rangitoto Island, Waiheke Island or, if you're a true nature lover, go to Tiritiri Matangi Island. Auckland Zoo and Auckland Museum are also top locations.
