Whitireia Park is a headland with commanding views over Mana Island and Porirua Harbour. The park comprises around 180 hectares of predominantly open space grasslands with some native bush.
It provides leisure activities such as fishing, mountain biking, horse riding, rock climbing, bird spotting and walking. The park also provides a unique opportunity for people to undertake a variety of leisure activities in or on the water including swimming, kite surfing and diving.
Steeped in Maori history, it is believed that the anchor stone of the canoe of legendary Maori explorer, Kupe, lay on Onehunga Beach for centuries. The stone is now housed in Te Papa Museum.
