Awhitu is a family friendly park that takes in wetlands, sandy beaches, views of Manukau Harbour plus some early settler homesteads.
When you arrive head left/north towards the restrooms, you’ll see a sign for the Settlers Valley Walk, marked in Yellow. These yellow markers will show you the way. The track quickly takes you to a beach, from here you can choose to take the track to the right or the beach to the left. The tracks merge a few hundred metres later at a small wharf. Head uphill and you’ll pass by the historic homestead, continue following the yellow waymarkers uphill to the viewpoint and take in the views and all the way back to the carpark.
Be sure to pack a little snack and don’t be afraid to stray down other paths there are some nice surprises.
