Mkara offers access to Wellington's west coast escarpments, historic Fort Opau and the West Wind Recreation Area. The cliffs and spectacular views at Mkara are features that for centuries provided the people of the area with good vantage points for the defence of their land. You can explore the Ngati Ira pa site on the promontory at the western end of Fisherman's Bay. There are also gun emplacements at the top of the cliffs, marking the position of Fort Opau, which was garrisoned by 100 soldiers during World War II. No camping or overnight parking.
