  • The Strand, Takapuna
Located 50 km from central Auckland on our southeastern coast, Waitawa is made up of three small peninsulas and fronts onto four bays. It’s a recreation park planned and developed with outdoor activities and fun in mind.

Walking, horse-riding and mountain-biking tracks have been created throughout the varied landscape on the park, in areas of former pine forest and regenerating native bush, up and down steep hills and through pasture. We walk on shared tracks, so please respect others. There are also many important cultural and heritage sites and interesting places so keep to the formed tracks.

Look out for information panels at prominent locations, special sites and interesting places that tell the story of Waitawa.

Visitors can take the short walk to the Pawhetau headland for spectacular vistas towards Pakihi and Ponui Islands. Waitawa also has a purpose-built sea-kayak campground.

Suitable for all trampers. High tide at 2.30pm so bring your togs
