Follow the blue markers to lands end. We’ve driven along Maraetai Coast Road south of Auckland several times and never really noticed the turnoff to Duder Regional Park. Turns out we’ve been missing a really scenic little walk to an old Pa site (fortified Māori settlement) at the end of Whakakaiwhara Point which juts out into the Tamaki Strait.
