Awaroa/Godley Head Campsite
The Godley Head WWII coastal defence battery sits atop sheer 120 metre-high cliffs. Built in 1939, it is ranked in the top ten New Zealand coastal defence heritage sites. Awaroa/Godley Head is a fantastic place to be for scenery alone. This exposed headland on top of sheer 120 metre-high cliffs can, on a clear day, provide views across the harbour to Banks Peninsula and far down the coastline. The vegetation is largely modified grasslands. White-flippered penguin/korora are being returned to a small bay just beyond the baches at Boulder Bay. The easy graded tracks, great views and fascinating history makes the Godley Head area suitable for small children and family groups. This location is a beautiful camping spot with onsite toilets and drinking water available.
