INTERNeX New Zealand: Bastion Point Walk.

For those of you who are living in Auckland or those who have a couple of days to spend here before moving to a farm/hospitality placement, the Bastion Point walk is a great (free) thing to do. Bastion point is located near Mission Bay, a very popular area with restaurants and a great beach.

You can start this walk at Selwyn Domain in Mission Bay, and then head along the beach and cross the Millennium Bridge. Walk along the waterfront, past Bastion Point to Hapimana Street. Follow the road up to the Savage memorial and check out the view to the water and the city. There are some formal gardens, a pond and the grave and memorial to Michael Joseph Savage (the first Labour Prime Minister of New Zealand). Then, return back down the hill towards Mission Bay. The walk is around 2 kilometers long and is open from 6.30am to 9pm.
