Overview

Visitors are able to enjoy this beautiful park area of mature trees and fish-filled lakes around the private industrial estate of the New Zealand Sugar Refinery. There are pleasant walks to be had through regenerating kanuka groves, and tracks connect with Kauri Point Park and Chatswood Reserve. The Refinery has been sited here in Chelsea Bay since 1883, originally chosen for its deep water access and plentiful fresh water supply. It was isolated in the early days, and had to create its own self sufficient little township. Some of the original brick Edwardian houses still stand in excellent restored condition.
