Amenities and activities

Takaparawha (Bastion Point), Orakei, Mission Bay, Kohimarama, Vellenoweth Green and St Heliers are all attractions on either side of the road along the way.

Tamaki Drive consists of a number of ancient headland Pā that jut out towards the Waitemata Harbour. The spectacular views are made more fantastic in early summer by the crimson blossoms of the pohutukawa that align the route.
