The Te Henui walkway is a lovely place for a stroll or bike ride. It follows the river up so it’s lovely to hear the water and bird song - very relaxing. It’s hard to believe that you’re in the middle of the city. There’s...More

Anyone visiting New Plymouth should walk the part of the Te Henui walkway which travels past the Te Henui Cemetery. The latter is well worth a visit as it full of beautiful flowers and trees.

Well maintained gravel track through the bush, enjoy the fresh air and the sound of birds. Track ends on the coastal walkway near a cafe and beach. What more could you want?

Its well worth getting your walking boots on and picking up this section of walkway as its a lovely jaunt. Although you almost creep around the back of some houses theres lots of amazing connections to the river and bush to appreciate. Well worth it.

5.9 km. Council website says 2 hours return. There are multiple entry/exit points so easy to do as much or as little as you want.
