Island View Stretch
Island View was originally called Koutinui.
In the early twentieth century significant archeological sites and middens were exposed, which revealed extensive Maori habitation since the 13th century.
The trails explore the lives of two early settler families who farmed the land from c1940s onwards, and early residential development.
The excursion begins in the Island View Reserve at its entrance and ends outside the Seaford Park.
Today Island View has become urbanised along both sides of Seaforth Road and also Emerton Road at the roundabout intersection.
