Near the northern end of Scenic Drive, just before going down to Swanson, is Pukematekeo Lookout. It used to be possible to drive up the hill, but recently I found the gate “closed for repairs”, resulting in unexpected exercise. But it is always nice to take in the view over the Waitakere Ranges, with the Tasman Sea to the West and Auckland City to the South-East. Embedded in the ranges lies Waitakere Dam, one of several dams in the area that supply drinking water to Auckland.
