Motutapu Island

Attached to Rangitoto by a narrow causeway; it is quite different in character and is a farmed reserve within the Hauraki Gulf Maritime Park. Sheltered bays, beaches and walks are features of this island. It has WW11 gun emplacements and a more extensive area of defence buildings at the northern end. Replanting is taking place on parts of the island
