This is the perfect place to impress that special someone with a surprise adventure and picnic. It's STUNNING! Easy to get to, especially from Mission Bay, an incredible view, perfect in the sunshine and the flowers are just beautiful.

I accompanied some friends from overseas and took them for a drive in Mission Bay as it is one of my favourite places in Auckland. I had however, forgotten about Bastion Point as I had not been there for ages. We used to go up with pizza or fish and chips on a weekend evening and watch the sunsets a... More

Would love it if o. The weekends the mobile coffee van was up there. Then you could sit back and take in the view. Lovely garden area always well kept. Shame sometimes about the people who can't keep their hands to themselves and vandalise stuff. Parking can get busy

With a breathtaking view overlooking Mission Bay and Auckland CBD, you should not miss this place. The place is breezy; it's very refreshing.

We arrived in Auckland and left the airport in the coach to get to the Memorial Park before the sun went down. After a nice ride we arrived to a brisk but not too cold place of serenity. The architecture was attractive with the correct amount of gravitas without being too heavy or ornate. The obelisk was a beautiful centerpiece.... More

Bastion Point looks out over the Waitamata harbour and is a great place to view the activities. It is a great place to stop if you are taking a drive of the waterfront and is close to other attractions if you are on the tourist trail. Bastion point has had an interesting history since European settlement and was the site... More

The Bastion Point lookout sits on top of a hill and you drive past Kelly Tarlton's on the way there. It has a nice garden on the bottom of a few stairs and sitting at the end is the memorial statue. Surrounding the statue is a well cared for lawn and on the left hand (facing towards the ocean) is... More

A delightful spot from which there are stunning views of the activities in the harbour and Rangitoto island. The gardens are carefully tended and great for gentle strolling around, or you can just sit and take in the scenery.

Good place to get out of the car, or to run to, or to bike to, whether a visitor or a long-term resident. There were guns here, and for the intrepid there remains a hidden underground generator room and magazine, if you know where to look...

We were concerned about the weather for our trip to Auckland as mid-May is approaching winter there. One of our first stops was the beautiful Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Garden and our concern ended there. This beautiful garden was in bloom, green and lush and meticulously cared for. The garden is a wonderful site on it's own but also provides... More
