This place seems to be right off the beaten track. Down a winding road that seemed never to end while taking in the amazing and stunning scenery. This eels more a place for boating, canoeing, kayaking or fishing. Very peaceful. Couldn't see anywhere to eat...More

At the end of long winding narrow road this Scott Landing is associated with the history of Scott Homestead, an iconic old building which managed by Auckland Council now. The beautiful homestead, dating from 1877, was almost derelict when bought by the former Auckland Regional...More

It was too windy at Snells Beach so we decided to drive to this hidden gem. Well worth it! The secluded location was exactly what we needed to rest and relax in the sun. There are plenty of amazing, huge trees to rest under too....More

Scott's Landing is the Mahurangi's best kept secret. The perfect place for a weekend picnic. Depending on the tide swimming is safe and sheltered. The outlook over the Mahurangi river, with moored yachts is very restful. Parking is somewhat restricted but adds to the quiet...More

This is historical place as well as beautiful nature spot. At low tide you can go for a walk around the small island. At high tide you can swim in well sheltered beach. The biggest Macrocarpa trees that I ever have seen in New Zealand...More

It's a bit of a drive to get here but definitely worth it. Beautiful, quiet, peaceful beach with the old Scott Homestead looking over it. Lovely old homestead which the council rents out for events (but not overnight stays). Well worth a visit.

A nice spot, unspoilt and with good views. Explore the old homestead in its lovely garden and, at low tide you can get across to Casnell Island.
