My husband and I walked on the trails here a short distance and ended up at the Angelican Cemetery. This is a beautiful old cemetery with graves going back to the 1800s. We also saw some beautiful flowers along the way. There are wonderful views...More

Lovely historical park to wander through with New Zealand native bush. There is a children's playground just in from the entrance.

Great for those who wish to just stretch their legs and see a bit of native Bush and a view off the harbor. There is an old playground which is good for the kids.
