Great scenic walk, the Tiri Tiri Track up wooded area to the coast at cliff area, gently undulating fields to the lookout with spectacular views all directions. Then to the beach for a swim. Great day, some small walks which look pleasant, but definitely head here on a nice day and explore

This is a place of paradise so close to Auckland that anybody with any nature in them should be embarrassed not to have come here! The birds, beach and country walks are exquisite - a must for all interested in these things - fully recommend to anyone who adores nature - but please no one who doesn't come - some... More

Enjoy a soak under the sun with a beautiful scenery. You can do water activities like swimming and kayaking. Cockles are also available for picking just beneath the muddy sand. Bbq grill are also available to use for free for everyone. Toilets and changing rooms are also available to use.

Bit off the beaten track but a nice spot for a swim and picnic. Very busy at weekends but plenty of space to stretch out. The peacocks are fun to feed and lots of other birds on park. Plenty of parking and great free day out.

Beautiful place to spend a day. Variety of walks, we went on a short walk to a waterfall which the children loved. Lovely well equipped bbq area and great choice of beaches to swim. just remember to plan your swim around the tides, the water goes out a long way on tidal beaches!

Super place to go for a picnic or barbeque – there are three beach areas the first Army Bay unimpressive - lots of fishermen - but further into the park there is one that is pet friendly and then if you enter the vermin protected area which covers most of the park (through electronic access controlled gates) there is a...
