Karekare Tunnel Camp Longdrop

Karekare Tunnel Camp Longdrop

About halfway between Karekare Point and Pararaha Point along Auckland’s West Coast is an ARC’s Tunnel Camp Site. Access is by foot only, and thus facilities are limited.

In the 19th century, the sea used to reach right to the bottom of the rock faces, but over time masses of sand have built up. There are now dunes containing freshwater lakes and wetlands, and the seashore is now nearly 1km further out.
