Location Description

Waiuku lies on a pretty estuary at the southern end of the Manukau Harbour and is the gateway to the Awhitu Peninsula. The area has long been home to the Nga Te Ata tribe. The town, which has about 6500 people, was settled by Europeans in 1851 and was the staging post for travel to the Waikato. It still has the feel of history with the oldest continuously licensed hotel in New Zealand and the early shop facades.

Less than an hour's driving from Auckland and ninety minutes from Hamilton, brings you through pastures and market gardening to the steeply folded peninsula with its dramatic ocean beaches, extensive vistas, many pohutukawa, calm harbour beaches, and peaceful regional park.

There are many attractions to experience starting with blue water fishing for marlin. Around 30km off the west coast is becoming popular with many local fisherman with regular catches being reported. The Manukau Harbour's sheltered bays have been popular for many years for light tackle fishing and shellfish gathering, while many take advantage of the still early mornings to surf cast from our black sand coastline. Trout fishing is allowed (with permits) on three local fresh water lakes.

Other attractions include surfing, bush walks and all types of organised sports to riding on the Glenbrook Vintage Railway, sailing on the Jane Gifford which offers trips under full sail on the Waiuku Estuary, visiting the several quality craft and garden enterprises where New Zealand's foremost artists and crafts people abound on the peninsula and in town. Or visit the Waiuku museum with its restored colonial village and craft shop.
