Puketutu Island

Day 54, Saturday 14 October 2017

Puketutu is a substantial volcanic island in the Manukau Harbour. There’s a permanent causeway to the shore (unlike Casnell Island‘s tidal causeway). The interior of the island is closed to the public, but there’s a carpark at the end of the causeway, and tracks for walking or cycling going a few kilometres around the shore in each direction. It feels very peaceful here, with plentiful bird life. The water is a pretty sparkling blue, but it’s treated sewage water from the nearby treatment plant and not safe to swim in.

Distance travelled: 40 km. Total distance so far: 7601 km
