Foster Bay and Entrance to Manukau Harbour

No, I did not say you could see Australia. But if you go past Manukau Heads through the narrow gap, and keep going West, you will eventually reach Australia (or some unspeakable adventure).

Meanwhile, in the foreground we have Foster Bay, Huia, and the cone of Te Komoki (Jackie Peak), seen from Huia Road.


  1. Not only “Auckland West”, but “NZ West”. Now tell me you’re not a Westie…..

  2. According to Wikipedia, “Westie” is a rather broad church which might even be able to accommodate me…

    To be called a westie in Auckland is sometimes ambiguous as it can be both a pejorative or good natured, depending on intent. Many people from Waitakere City will call themselves westies with pride, yet not meet the stereotypical criteria. Westies are stereotypically seen as being more brash and of-the-soil than other districts of Auckland. The stereotype also incorporates black jerseys and old V8 cars, most westies are featured on the New Zealand TV show Police Ten 7 which broadcasts live police workers on duty.

    The little white ship on the left makes the photo perfect!
