#64 of 134 in Parks in Auckland
Duder Regional Park is a 162ha regional park situated on the coast to the east of Auckland city, New Zealand.HistoryThe park was created in 1995 after the sale of the land by the Duder family to the Auckland Regional Council. Prior to the sale the land had been farmed by descendants of Thomas Duder for about 130 years. The land was purchased in 1866 from the original Maori owners Ngai Tai who had historically built a pa on the headland.An extra 13.7 ha was added in 2010 to prevent coast development obstructing views from the park.DescriptionThe park is a working farm bounded to the west by Duders Beach. It is situated on a headland and offers commanding views of the Hauraki Gulf. There is limited native bush as most of the land is grassed. There are no designated picnic areas and facilities are limited.Small numbers of the endangered tuturiwhatu (New Zealand dotterel) breed on shell banks south of the park. This area is not accessible to the public.

  • Stunning coastal views and lots of good walking. Great for a picnic and the "help yourself" orienteering course is great fun.
  • Nice regional park to wander around. You can do the orienteering course to make the walks a lot longer and explore all the area.
  • Amazing place for a day campaign with family and friends. Beautiful calm beach, long walk from the main entrance, many bench to seat and eat. Totally loved it.
  • Nice new regional park for Auckland running as an operational farm.
  • Very Nice and peaceful 🕺
