Heritage Track – Farm Walk

Heritage Track – Farm Walk

As you exit the forest section of the Shakespear Regional Park Heritage Track, you enter the farm walk section. Head uphill across the paddock towards the high viewpoint. It may be a bit muddy after rain. This part of the park is a working farm and some of the nearby paddocks will be occupied by sheep, and likely a few pukeko.

Once on the ridge, the views are superlative, looking out to Hauraki Gulf and the various islands and back towards Auckland City in the very far distance. Go up the viewpoint for the best views, plus explanatory panels.

From there, you can continue down the farm road to link up with the Heritage loop, including a WW2 pillbox, or take one of the tracks that end up at Te Haruhi Bay.
