Alice Eaves Scenic Reserve
Alice Eaves Scenic Reserve, known colloquially as "Eaves Bush", is 16ha forest located at the northern end of Orewa. It is named after Mrs Alice Caroline Eaves (d. 1955), whose family bequeathed the land to the nation in 1960.
The area was previously a defensive Pa, built by Te Kawerau sub-tribes, occupied until as recently as 1827. Ngāti Pāoa ceded the land to the Crown on 5 January 1854, which was subsequently granted to an Austrian, Captain Martin Krippner, in 1860.
