An exclusive opportunity to explore a very special historic site with archaeological project manager Timothy Moon.
Fort Stony Batter Heritage Site lies at the far eastern end of Waiheke Island within Man o War Station. Stony Batter was built during the Second World War, part of a top-secret defensive shield against German and Japanese attack. The complex is the largest construction in NZ comprising some 1,000m of subterranean tunnels with 750mm thick walls, chambers, magazine rooms and terrestrial buildings. It was designed to receive direct bombardment, features shockwave deflectors and other innovative construction design.
This all-day-tour also includes a visit to the Man O' War Vineyards, lunch, refreshments and transport.
