I love walking here, the bird life is teeming and the forest is deep and beautiful and you can just get lost in here (figuratively speaking, the walkway is very clearly signposted...). I highly recommend this walk to any fellow bush lovers.

Went from the southern end, heading towards Silverdale (to the North). The idea was to get picked up at the car park out in front of the Silverdale Caravan Park, by simply calling our friend....by mobile phone. The signage and track definition is quite good...More

Okura bush walk is another amazing walk in Auckland. To find it, you'll need your own transport as it's pretty much off the beaten track, but it is easy to find. There is plenty of parking - when we were there , there were 33...More

Okura Bush Walkway takes about an hour each way. You get an amazing, stimulating, and refreshing tramp — there are about 600 steps as well as normal tracks — and you get a great view from the summit just before you get to the end....More

Did the walk to the cottage from the Haigh Access Road carpark end while we were staying at the Okura River Estate B & B. Excellent walk. Locals call it a bush land but we likened it to a rainforest. Lovely enchanting shaded walk to...More

Easy 3hour (one-way) thru forest/river trail along Okura River Estuary. During low tide, can opt to take the return route via the sandy beaches. It was a nice walk, arriving on beautiful empty beach.

If you are in the region of Orewa, and Long Bay in the Hauraki Gulf, this walkway is the epitome of a scenic New Zealand coastal walk. This is so typical of Aotearoa's natural beauty in the north. The track winds through bush, over headland,...More
