At the eastern end of the island, privately owned Stony Batter has WWII tunnels and gun emplacements that were built in 1941 to defend Auckland’s harbour. The 20-minute walk from the car park leads through private farmland; bring cash for the entry fee. At the time of writing the tunnels were shut until further notice due to safety concerns, but you can still wander around the site.
