Ōtuataua stonefields (2 o 2)

Ōtuataua stonefields

The Ōtuataua stonefields historic reserve is near the mouth of Auckland’s Manukau Harbour. The stone wall in the foreground was built by European farmers, but the cleared areas further away were pre-European Māori gardens. The remains of cooking areas, shell middens and kūmara (sweet potato) storage pits are visible.
