4. Te Maro on Kaiti Hill

A beautiful tribute to the important figures and voyaging traditions of the region’s history, the Te Maro sculpture on Titirangi, Kaiti Hill is a spectacular feature to admire by day but it’s even more stunning illuminated at night. Perched above on the Ruatanuika lookout, this 10-metre high sculpture is lit up and all aglow once the sunsets. With its intricate Māori design made of disc-shaped steel, this impressive structure is absolutely breathtaking beneath the night sky so make sure to have your cameras ready.
