- Kauri Point preserves the last remaining Maori pa on Waitemata Harbour and provides excellent views of the upper harbour and the Auckland Harbour Bridge. An important settlement in pre-European times, the location provided both a strategic and fertile environment. The Kawerau Tribe used Kendalls Bay as a summer fishing centre when sharks gathered offshore. The cliffs are comprised of Waitemata Sandstone and are now home to regenerating kauri and coastal flax among other native flora.
