Stony Batter carpark
Same as start
One of our most popular walks from 2022.

Hike across stunning farmlands with the kind permission of Man O’ War farm, viewing land and sea from spots very few have been. Bring your togs and and snacks if you fancy a quick dip at Hooks Bay Beach. This walk starts and ends at Stony Batter, with an optional charter bus.

Price covers the premium walk fee of $15 and GST. Optional return charter bus available for $40pp. Select this option below if needed.

Note: If traveling from Auckland city, you’ll need to catch the 7.45am ferry.


This walk is graded 8 out of 10. This means the walk is mostly unformed route or tracks that can be tricky underfoot, and can have some prolonged steep hills – but well worth the effort.
