The Official Waiheke Island Tourism Site

Stony Batter Gun Emplacements


As of Winter 2015 access inside the famous tunnels is temporarily closed. However this remains one of New Zealand’s great walks & a fascinating historical site. Make your way to the eastern end of Waiheke to the locked gate on Man ‘O War Bay Rd. The walk travels along a gravel road passing many huge rocks scattered over the countryside. Discover a Nikau palm forest, 360 degree views, with the most stunning towards the east over islands and Coromandel. A world away from Waiheke’s population, ideal for picnics and photography.
