Matakawau Scenic Reserve

Text Matakawau Scenic Reserve
GPS Coordinates

The Matakawau Scenic Reserve is now complete with a footbridge over Opoia Creek and a boardwalk across the church camp  land to link up with Hatton Road Reserve.  A short walk of 200m up Hatton Road will give you access to the Awhitu Regional Park, from there numerous walking tracks are available.

The track can be entered either at the Matakawau Point Reserve or at the Sergeants Beach Reserve at the end of Sergeants Road. The Ratepayers Assn has planted 800 trees along the track over the past 12 years to provide shade and an environment for the wildlife of the area. It is intended to provide more signs for the track and some display boards of the wildlife in the area for public information.

The track is not long and can be covered from Sergeants Road to the ARC park in about 20 minutes at a fast walk, but it is recommended to take your time and enjoy the magnificent view over the Manukau Harbour, Auckland City and the Airport. This walking track has been provided for public use by the Matakawau Ratepayers Assn and all the work has been done on a voluntary basis.
