Take a self-guided historical walk through one of Auckland’s major remnants of volcanic stonefields. Ōtuataua Stonefields is a site of significance to mana whenua, where the earliest Māori settlers cleverly adapted to a subtropical environment, using warm volcanic stones to give their tropical crops a longer growing season. The stonefields and Ambury Park each link to the Kiwi Esplanade Walkway, a coast-hugging path ideal for walkers, birdwatchers or anyone who fancies beautiful harbour views.
