Pine Harbour Marina and Motorsport Museum

Looking for somewhere to spend a lazy day or want to take the scenic route via the Pohutakawa Coast when heading south out of Auckland then dropping by Pine Harbour near Beachlands is a great idea.  Or if you want a day excursion there is regular ferries to and from the Auckland CBD.

Pine Harbour is not just  Marina and a place to park your boat.  There is also some great options for lunch, dinner or a quick snack at Pepper Jacks Cafe, the Jolly Rodger Pub or Kaiseki Japanese Restaurant.  Just up the road is the international standard Formosa Golf Resort for anyone that fancies a round on a course with spectacular views over the Waitemata Harbour and the Hauraki Gulf islands.   If you plan you visit for a Saturday morning you will get to enjoy the Fresh Market.  In true French style, Pine Harbour Fresh Market brings the best line-up of local food and beverage producers alongside exclusive Europe an imported culinary ingredients

Of course what would a place be without something to do with Motorsport!  Attached to the Marina and a short walk from the ferry terminal is the Pine Harbour Motorsport Museum.  This is a small private collection of some rare and interesting vehicles, some with racing pedigree.  Highlights are
  • 1928 Auburn Speedster - a class winner in the American "Great Race"
  • 1977 Yamaha 750 - the 1977 Isle of Man TT winner ridden by Joey Dunlop
  • 1959 Cooper Climax T51 driven by Sir Jack Brabham and Bruce Mclaren
  • 1964 JAP Speedway bike ridden by Ivan Mauger
  • Ford Cosworth Sierra - winner 1989 Bathurst 1000
The museum is only open by prior arrangement however it is enclosed in a large glass walled building so it is possible to view the exhibits at any time you wish to visit.
