Anawhata is remote, accessible on a 10 km gravel road and then a steep walk down to the beach from the road end. And you can even go further to Parera Bay crossing the Anawhata stream.
Walk around the cliffs and see great views of Keyhole Rock. And in the middle of the bush is Keddle House. Built 1930’s and now part of the Auckland Council Regional Park the house can be rented. Beauty and solitude requires a steep walk perfect for a city break.
Further back on Anawhata Road is Craw Homestead, another of the old houses that has been restored and is available for rent. The house is situated in a campground that is part of the Hillary Trail. Find and book accommodation in our parks.
