Otuatua Stone Fields

If you have an interest in history or archaeology, a visit to the Otuatau Stone Fields is a must!

Territorial rights or ‘mana whenua’ of the Auckland isthmus have been hotly disputed by Maori iwi (tribes) for centuries. Its protected harbours, bountiful seafood, abundance of easily-fortified volcanic cones, fertile soil and warm climate combined to attract competing tribes from both North and South. Consequently, Auckland is a treasure trove of ancient Maori history.

The Otuataua Stone Fields is one such treasure located only 10 minutes drive from your hotel. Volcanic stones belched from local eruptions were used by Maori to demarcate gardens and to warm the soil for staple crops of kumara and taro. Now protected from the urban sprawl that has engulfed much of the region, at this site it’s easy to let your imagination take hold and drift back in time.

The reserve is protected by the Historic Places Trust and administered by South Auckland’s urban authority, the Manukau City Council.
