Stony Batter, at Waiheke's eastern end, is renowned for its remarkable rock outcrops and extensive tunnels and gun sites dating back to World War II.  A road and walkway crosses private farmland to reach the Stony Batter Historic Reserve.

Stony Batter is a 10 to 25 minute walk to the tunnels from the carpark off Man O' War Bay Road.  Look for direction signs.
