Blockhouse Bay

Portage Road in Blockhouse Bay is the location of one of the overland routes between the two harbours (and thus the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea), where the Maori would beach their waka (canoes) and drag them overland to the other coast, thus avoiding having to paddle around North Cape. In 1920 the earliest Europeans followed the coastline of the Manukau Harbour in an endeavour to find if there was a waterway connecting the two harbours.
The area was a popular holiday resort in the 1920s for Aucklanders with city families making the long journey over rough roads to spend the summer in their holiday cottages or camping on the beach. If you are looking for the best tradesmen in Blockhouse Bay, look no further.
