“Short Day Trip From Auckland”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

This is a really awesome place to visit. First time I have been. Not far from Auckland only about 1 and half hours. The view of the Manukau harbour and the Tasman Sea and surrounding country side is spectacular on a sunny day.

“An amazing view”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This lighthouse has been carefully restored and the sad history is well told, however the best bit is the lovely grounds and incredible 360 degree views of the Manukau harbour and beyond.

“A good day out”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

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
