Well worth the walk to get to the area
Thd surrounding views are amazing
If you go in summer make sure you go early or later in the day as it gets very warm. Tunnels not currently open but still plenty to see

You need transport to get to this location and you need to be prepared for a hike (easy) from the carpark to the site. The gun emplacements, views and rock formations are worth the walk but hopefully they will re-open the tunnels soon as exploring these would have been the icing on the cake.

Great drive to east end of the island, then a good walk to WW2 fortifications. Excellent views to north over the Bay and east to Coramandel.

I can't think of anything else I've seen that's quite like this. Stunning view, especially on a clear day!

OK showing my age but last time i was here (3 decades ago) it was all about discovering the tunnels! Nice drive to get there and beautiful but we wanted tunnels
