  • Ambury Farm Day was first held in spring 1988 and is about making farming and outdoor recreation accessible to all Aucklanders – connecting the city with country life. It takes more than 200 committed volunteers (many of them council staff) to help make the event happen.
  • Ambury Regional Park offers a range experiences to suit all including picnicking, camping, walking, mountain biking, barbeques and visiting the animals. You can also experience cow milking and lamb feeding at appropriate times of the year.
  • The park is a bird watcher’s paradise, so keep a look out for odwits, knots, pied oystercatchers, wrybills, pied, black and little shags and white-faced herons.
  • Dogs are not permitted at Ambury Regional Park because of the threat to native birds and farm animals.
