Abstract:

"Matiatia Bay is the gateway to Waiheke Island. For centuries it has been the landing place for travellers in the Hauraki Gulf - from waka to yachts, excursion steamers and commuter ferries. Now Matiatia finds itself at a crossroads - this ... heritage site is also a transport hub for the island. The pressure for development is real, yet the bay's historical significance must be respected. Waiheke residents, urban planners, the Auckland Council, shipping operators and other local industry all have a keen interest in what happens next at Matiatia."--Back cover.
