This old lighthouse protecting the Manukau harbour and the Tasman sea is well worth a visit.
It is kept very nice, the parking is limited but free, and the walk from the car is an easy one for all ages, take your camera is a must, the views are great.
Travel from Downtown Auckland by rental car to Waiku via southern motorway, go through Waiuku township and follow signs to Manukau heads and Awitu , good roads but from Auckland well over an hour and suggest you stop at Waiuku for refreshments.
Another way is to travel to Titirangi - Huia and arrange for a boat to take you on a 12 minute trip across the harbour, I have done this before but can be tricky in windy conditions.
True New Zealand nature, not ruined by modern buildings
