I got so lost just trying to find this one (had to pull over about 5 times to check the map) but once I arrived I found everything all laid out in front of me. Like Cemetery Crater and the Puhinui Craters, Boggust Park doesn’t appear in Hayward’s Auckland Volcanoes -The Essential Guide as it was only recognised as a volcano in 2011 the exact same year the book went to print and a mere one year after I originally devised a vague plan to explore all the volcanoes in Auckland.
I parked right by this blockade on Otago Place and set out for the crest. It didn’t look very high at all from back here.
Down the hill I came and only then did I see this fancy sign. I’m glad I didn’t see it first or I would’ve been expecting to see some real proper birds (but what bird has that silhouette anyway? A quail?)
I would say there are no toilets here but now I can see a blue cubicle in the distance -it may not be a permanent fixture though.
