Gerald Crapp Reserve

The Gerald Crapp Historic Reserve comprises a coastal strip around the headland of Omokoroa Point.

Most of the reserve is located on relatively flat land situated at the top of steep cliffs. The rest of the reserve includes 7 metre high cliffs and shoreline to the mean high water mark. Developments have included a significant planting of trees and shrubs but most significant  are the older trees planted in the 1870s.

The southern end of the reserve slopes gently down towards the cliff edges, and at the northern end of the reserve on the head land there is an area of raised ground which was the site of a Maori Pa (Wai-Huri).

Access is from Gellibrand Place, up the path from the Omokoroa Domain or along the cliff-top walkway from Bramley Drive or Ruamoana Place.
