  • Went with a friend to Shakespear Regional Park on a beautiful sunny weekend. The beach there was beautiful and there was plenty of parking for big families. There were barbecues available for families to cook their food and a lot of shade to cool down after spending time swimming and sunbathing. This is a beautiful place to take the family.
  • Great place to relax, just don't expect to have a picnic here as the birds will be presenting a little challenge to you. They roam freely so there's a fair amount of droppings everywhere and they are very much used to humans and getting free feeds.
  • Awesome spot looking directly at Rangitoto... Has a Birds Avery there too. Had a great time there at the camp when we had a family reunion huge space gulf harbor up the road so everything is near.
  • Drop dead gorgeous! Amazing 'lookout walk' (45-50mins) with 360 degree views plus a lookout post. Relatively easy walk with some steep areas (but not too bad). Perhaps not for suitable for wheel chairs and heavy prams due to farm gates and a few stairs.
  • Beautiful grounds, classy old buildings with character and a beautiful bay. Plenty of activities for all ages. Impressed with the recycling and use of food scraps to feed the local pigs. So a very nice historical area to play, walk and relax. Will go back again next year. W
