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.Location: Stonybatter Road, Waiheke Island Web: Department of Conservation page
