Kauri Point in New Zealand is off the Onetaunga Road in Auckland. It is one of the popular and well known tourist destinations. It is also a place of prime historical importance. The point preserves the Maori pa (the last one that remains till date) on the Waitemata Harbour. From here one can also get an excellent view of the Auckland Harbour Bridge and the upper harbour. The location used to be one of the most important ones in the olden times (the pre European times) and was an extremely cultivable and fertile area. Previously, a tribe called the Kawerau Tribe flocked to some parts of the Kendalls Bay in the summer months to catch and fish shark that had gathered there. Today, Kauri Point is now coming back to life in terms of regeneration of its flora and fauna which once abounded there.
