Hamilton's Gap

Site Information

Hamilton's Gap is located toward the top of the Manukau South Head.

Continue beyond Matakawau, headed for Manukau Heads light house and take the next road to the left, Hamilton road.

Launch locations are to both right and left of the gap, the better prospect being to the right immediately along from the toilet block.
