The memorial of 19th Prime Minister of New Zealand 🇳🇿 and the leader of Reform Party. Known as one of the greatest politicians at that time. His wife, Christina Allen Massey also buried there. Have to walk approximately 10 minutes to the memorial park.

A short walk from Shelly Bay Road up to Memorial offering fantastic views all across the harbour. Well worth the 10 minute walk. We combined it with a trip to Shelly Bay. Track up to the memorial is not wheelchair friendly and a little stony

We walked up after dinner, was a fairly easy incline, lots of great views from the top. Took a few photos and others were having a picnic. Keen to go back.

The trail out to the memorial is a nice walk, and the memorial itself is very grand. There was a nice view of the harbor from the memorial. It was a pleasant time - nothing spectacular, though.
