Beautiful garden setting up at the top of the hill which offers beautiful views of Auckland city and the Waitemata/Auckland harbour. You almost forget that it's a grave/memorial site as the views seem to be the main attraction here.

Came up here on a sunny winter day, spectacular views across Auckland city and Rangitoto. Even in midwinter the memorial garden was beautifully tended and colourful.

Fly a kite, have a romantic picnic or just laze in the sun with a book. Enjoy the sweeping view of Auckland City, the harbour and Rangitoto island. A fantastic place to take photos all year round. Plenty of parking and a superb spot to take all out of town visitors.

This was the best park I saw in Auckland. The gardens were nicely cared for with green lawns and attractive flower beds. The reflecting pool was very nice. A bride and groom having their photos taken added to the relaxed atmosphere. The views over the harbour and the city topped off the visit to the park. The park is free... More

My parents were married at Bastion Point so we returned to check out the view. After being there for 30 mins and really enjoying ourselves we came back to our rental car to find the rear quarter window on the drivers side had been smashed and my Mum's bag stolen. Sour end to an otherwise enjoyable visit.

This is a must-see location for photos across Auckland. There is free entry to drive to the top and adequate parking. The Memorial Park is part of the larger Bastion Point reserve and contains interesting history of Maori settlement and injustice. The memorial is well laid out and a tribute, the site is well maintained, and walking to the point... More

A short drive from the city is Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park. It is honor of the most loved Prime Minister of New Zealand and has spectacular views of the Harbor, Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea. The gardens are gorgeous and be sure to take a picture of the memorial in the reflection pool.

This was a "whistle stop tour" as part of a Celebrity Solstice cruise ship shore excursion. There was a very nice view over the harbour and towards the city and the gardens are beautifully maintained and set out. From our observation, on the day we were there, it seems like it is a popular tourist destination. We only had time... More
