Located near the quiet settlement of Huia by the Manukau Harbour, the campground is located on rolling pastures with a backdrop of forest-clad hills and a bush stream nearby with great picnic spots.
From the campground, you can walk through a number of paddocks to Karamatura Valley Campground and then make your way to the Karamatura Falls.
Check for open and closed tracks and help protect our kauri
We have closed large sections of the Waitākere Ranges to prevent the spread of kauri dieback.
When you visit our parks, you need to clean your footwear and equipment to avoid transferring disease from one area to another.
Find open and closed tracks and read about protecting our kauri.
