Whangaparaoa - Lookout Ridge
There are 4 sites located at the end of Whangaparaoa Peninsula mostly in the Shakespeare Regional Park. These sites are accessed by taking State Highway 1 to just south of Orewa and turning right, headed East to the end of Whangaparaoa Peninsula following the signposts for Shakespeare Regional Park.
This site is located on the crest of the hill overlooking Te Haruhi Bay, located by the gate, on the left and is 180 feet A.S.L
You could park at the picture frame and walk up to the ridge towards the lookout.
I have actually never seen anyone flying here, except for model planes.
Paddocks near the beach. Be careful of trees and people.
