From the McMillan Rd end, the track follows a farm fence line with markers to the Mount William Scenic Reserve. The reserve hosts a wide variety of native trees and shrubs including kauri, hard beech and king ferns. From the Mount William summit (373 m) there are expansive views to the West Coast and Firth of Thames.
Louis will then purchase some famous Pokeno bacon & we will head to Miranda & cook you all bacon butties for lunch ($5) & then take a stroll along the shell bank.
If you wish to meet at McMillan Rd please let the leader know.
Mount William is south of Auckland, just past the Bombay Hills. Turn left off SH1 onto Beaver Rd, then right into Razorback Rd and left into Puketutu Rd. Or turn onto SH2, then left into Irish Rd and left into McMillian Rd.
