The Official Waiheke Island Tourism Site

Waiheke Island, Auckland, New Zealand

Stony Batter Gun Emplacements

Stony Batter Historic Reserve

Update Summer 2020 from Tourism Waiheke - a new operator has been granted a concession to refurbish and re-open the tunnels under the name Fort Stony Batter.

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.
