Off the beaten track, you're not likely to find this just driving by. There's only a small sign, then a drive past some homes, up to the top. Set in a hidden park and overlooking Onehunga and Manukau.

It's not in the centre of Auckland but it is worth an hour or two of your time if you are interested in history, architecture, landscaped gardens or modern painting, photography and sculpting. Huge ancient trees, rolling lawns, a splendid old mansion were for us...More
