Business Type: Auckland, North Head


North Head is considered the most significant historical coastal defence site in New Zealand - situated on a small headland with commanding views looking out over the entrance to the Waitemata Harbour....

Address: North Head Auckland Auckland City


Fortifications date from the late 1800’s up to the Second World War when North Head was a major military camp.

A self guided walk through the maze of tunnels details their military history along with the gun placements and searchlights placed to protect Auckland from attack.

The walk takes approximately 1 hour.
