The 40 hectares of land has a mixture of open farm land, regenerating forest, pohutukawa-fringed cliff tops, mangrove mudflats, rocky sea shore and a sandy beach.

Family walks

Special events

Omana is the perfect venue for that special family event.

History

The park takes its name from the well preserved ring ditch pa, O-Manawatere (the dwelling place of Manawatere). Ngai Tai tradition records that this ancestor travelled from his Pacific homeland not by canoe, but by gliding over the water.
By the mid 1840s European settlers were clearing and farming the land in the area. Kauri felled in the Maraetai hills behind Omana was hauled by bullock teams down to the sea and then floated to mills in Auckland.
