The Achilles Point is named after the ship that took down the German pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee. The lookout point offers a gorgeous view of the Waitemata Harbour and is rare treat if you love to explore scenic places. A number of geological formation along the small hike to St Heliers add to the visit.
Looking down from the Achilles Point you can see a rock formation that looks like the bow of a ship while the traditional Maori carvings seen at the point are the highlight. Do carry a camera to capture the views from the point.
