Three features in particular attract people to Kauri Point:
- The magnificent specimens of pohutukawa lining the shore
- A long, wooden jetty that extends 200 metres out into the harbour (highly popular for fishing)
- Several pā fortification sites
After dropping down it links up with the northern end of Chelmsford Street. Here you have the choice of turning back to the car park via Chelmsford Street, or continuing down and along near the shore to the end of Ongare Point Road.
Please take care walking around the cliff edges and please follow instruction signs.
