Makara Walkway

Point of Interest

4 from 1 user.


This 6km loop walk climbs to vantage points with spectacular views farmland, a beach and gun emplacements will keep kids interested. The track climbs to vantage points with spectacular views, and returning along the beach. The high cliffs and spectacular views for centuries have provided the people of the area with good vantage points for the defence of their land. A Ngati Ira pa site lies on the promontory at the western end of Fisherman's Bay, and gun emplacements at the top of the cliffs mark the position of Fort Opau, which was garrisoned by 100 soldiers during World War II. Part of track closed for lambing season between 1 August and 30 September. Access to the gun emplacements is via Mkara Beach during this time. No dogs.
