Drive south out of Auckland on the motorway, State Highway 1, across a marine terrace consisting of Miocene sedimentary rocks (Waitemata Sandstone). We pass several basalt volcanoes, the youngest (approximately 600 years old) and largest is Rangitoto in the Waitemata Harbor. At Manurewa, head east (left) to Clevedon (consult road map-not included). From Clevedon, proceed northeast on Clevedon Kawakawa Rd to Kawakawa Bay, about 15 km. At Kawakawa Bay, continue northeast along the coast road for about 2 km. From here to end of road (about 1 km) Mesozoic greywacke is exposed at low tide along beach.
