I live here and are sick and tired of tourists hogging the entire walkway, stopping right in the middle for chats. Ridiculous arrogant attitude. Stay away from this place on Sundays, madness.

Pleasant scenery as you wind your way around the path. Begin and end at the Estuary Arts Centre and you can have refreshments at the little cafe and enjoy the current exhibition. Alternatively, head over the road to the fantastic Orewa beach.

Estuary track takes you along the everchanging estuary, past houses, through bush, the new Millwater suburb, a gravel track and back to the beginning again. Widely used and good for all types of fitness levels.

A well laid out bike/walking track. Just under 8k. Good to take some water along. Use the toilets at the start on Hibiscus Coast Highway before you start walking as there are no public toilets on the loop track.

I spent Sunday afternoon with many others enjoying the sun. I biked around the track and in to Orewa. There is still work being done, it will be amazing when finished but great already.

Hi, Yes you can in Orewa town near the cycle path. As we use our own cycles I can't tell you the cost.
