I would definitely recommend this day hike to Auckland visitors. You get a great idea of the size of the city and it’s green spaces. The route is clearly laid out in the Explore Central Auckland map, ( from the tourist information centres) but we...More

Pleasant walking on the marked route, from Onehunga to the Viaduct (or reverse direction). About half on footpaths and half through parks including over two volcanos. Plenty of food and drink options along the way, but toilets are harder to find.

We started the walk from Onehunga station. The starting point was quite easy to find from there (turn left up Princes St and walk to the park; about half a mile). When you see the skate park you know you’re there. The train was great,...More

If you truly love to walk many miles and are willing to get disoriented along the way...then you will love it. I didn't have much else to do for the day so I wasn't too worried about that time it would take. But I didn't...More

We enjoyed this walk. It was quite strenuous at times but worth the effort. Some great views of the city. A good opportunity to see different neighbourhoods and landscapes.

The Coast to Coast is a great way to see many parts of Auckland, including One Tree Hill and Mt Eden, which both offer super views. The walk is lengthy and hilly, so a reasonable level of fitness is needed. None of the visitor centres...More

You can easily do the majority of the coast to coast walk with a buggy as you go on sidewalks; however, when you get to Mt. Eden, it is a single, maybe double-track, dirt path. But there are different ways to get to Mt... More

No, you don't need to book. It is something you can do on your own, as it is a walk across the city and some parks. However, try to find a decent map, as the signs are lacking and you can add a lot of mileage if you get... More
