Join us for a guided tour of North Head's historic coastal defences.

Explore the gun positions and the tunnels that formed a formidable defence for Auckland Harbour and the Gulf against Russian invasion and both World Wars.

The trip is free. Our experienced guides will ensure a family-friendly commentary suitable for all ages.

Bring a torch to light your trip through some gloomy tunnels. Be warned that a climb may be required to reach the summit of North Head.
