Greater Wellington Regional Council recently led a successful consortium bid to procure Baring Head Station, a 284ha property at the end of the Wainuiomata Coast Road that contains the Baring Head lighthouse. For more information about Baring Head please click here. If you have any questions about Baring Head, please contact the Park Ranger.
Information signage is now available at every entrance to East Harbour Regional Park, including the Parangarahu Lakes area. For an introduction to what you will find at the Parangarahu Lakes area take a look at the new information kiosk situated near the Waihine memorial at the southern end of Eastbourne.
The recently upgraded Cheviot Road track at Lowry Bay is well worth a visit. It offers spectacular views of Wellington Harbour and links with a number of other local tracks to form interesting half or full day walks through the northern end of the park. All tracks are well sign-posted.
