Perfume Point is a small headland at the mouth of Inner Harbor at Ahuriri. Along one side is this black sand beach ending at Spriggs Park. On the other side is a boardwalk running parallel to the Ahuriri Estuary. This pathway leads to retailers and restaurants along West Quay. During colonial times, this area was called Town Split. Locals sarcastically labeled this promontory Perfume Point because it used to be a sewer outlet.
