Nice place, many old cottages. Some are very small and poor, some big comfortable houses, one big residence. Worth seeing, 1 hour away from downtown by bus.

A great spot of historical time out. A collection of old cottages nicely restored and with useful information about the houses and period in Auckland. Well worth a visit.
