Having done the bus tours this was a great way to see and get to know an unfamiliar city even better. It takes you past some of the key spots like One Tree Hill, Mount Eden and Auckland Domain. Although the walk probably flows better from north to south (giving a better approach to monuments and gardens) I opted to... More

I visited Auckland for business but took some extra leave to do this walk. My ambition is to (mostly) run it in future but I walked it quite quickly mostly because I was tight for time. I agree that the signage is not obvious/easy to follow. I did prepare by researching on the internet but still managed to get a... More

Not the main Coast-to-Coast Walkway but a great Auckland coastal walk. Starting from Takapuna (convenient car park area at the bottom of the Promenade) the walk to Milford Bay takes 45 minutes for the average walker. It does, however, have some challenging rock area during the first 10-15 minutes which have been made considerably worse by Takapuna Council (?) surprisingly... More

I would recommend that everyone who visits Auckland does this walk. The 16km walk takes you from Onehunga to the Viaduct Harbour (or vice-versa but I'd recommend finishing in the city) and you pass through or near most of TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet's top "Things to Do": Viaduct Harbour, Mt Eden, One Tree Hill, Auckland Museum, Albert Park, Auckland's Domain...

We were really looking forward to doing this portion of the Te Araroa Trail through Auckland City. Alas the signage is very poor - we spent majority of our time looking for the signs, which were inconsistent at best & often missing or hidden at worst. Backtracked several times to discover the sign was hidden or turned around or faded.... More

Amazing walk. Took us 4 hours and we didn't rush. Signs were easy to follow. I would suggest onehunga- Auckland way as you can see the sky tower if you get lost haha.

We did this walk from onehunga to the city. We started at 7am and got to town at 1030. We have a moderate to good fitness level. It was a fantastic walk and the weather was cloudy but we still had a good view. We just had a few probs with following signs. Some trees blocked the signage and sometimes... More

An absolutely free and marvelous way to explore Auckland. A vigorous walk with urban scenery, volcano hikes, monuments, parks and seaside. What's not to like? Bring a well charged phone or map in case you need to orient yourself to find the trail.

A great way to view Auckland and to get fit at the same time. More healthy than a Hop on a Bus Experience! No need to rush - enjoy!

16 km in 4 hours...well it took us way longer, but only because the viewing points were soooo amazing, that we had no other option than to take at least 100 photos. So if you wanna see a little bit more of Auckland than just downtown, this tour is definitely the right way for you. And the sunset on the... More
