Bastion Point offers breathtaking views out over the Hauraki Gulf and Waitemata Harbour and back to the city skyline. Explore the WWII-era bunkers and gun emplacements, or enjoy the tranquillity in the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Gardens. Savage was New Zealand’s Prime Minister from 1935-1940.
A path to the front of the bus leads down the hill to Mission Bay, where you will find a beautiful calm beach and a range of shops and places to eat. Please note this path is fairly steep, and if you wish to rejoin the bus at this stop, allow time for the return walk. Alternatively you can walk back around the waterfront and rejoin the bus at Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium (stop 3), just past the entrance. This is a pleasant 30 minute walk and well suited to a fine day.
