50 mins from the city but only a few steps from the water, staying at Barr Cottage is like stepping back in time.
Built by Bill Barr between 1935 and 1940 with materials from the original cottage of the 1880s, this charming historical cottage is a perfect place to recharge.
Barr Cottage provides easy access to stunning Huia and is a great base from which to explore the breathtaking Whatipū beach. There are boat landing or launching facilities either from the beach with a 4WD or at the nearby ramp.
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.
