Bluff Hill Lookout
During World War II and for a few years after hostilities ended, this lookout was occupied by 77 Battery 10 Coast Regiment NZA.
The Battery manned two 6-inch guns in concrete emplacements built on a strategic site offering commanding views of Hawke Bay - the highest point of the Bluff Hill Domain, above the Port of Napier.
The gunners' barracks were located behind the Battery. A plaque, with the following inscription, records the army's presence on the site.
Bluff Hill Lookout in Memory of F B and L W Eastwood whose generous donation enabled the Napier City Council to undertake this development so citizens and visitors can enjoy the panorama of Hawke's Bay. These enclosures are built on the remnants of two World War II gun emplacements. October 1989
