We have put together over 100 little known short walks in and around Auckland so that you can easily find your way around our unique and diverse city.

Join 1500+ fellow walkers! Start walking with 10 FREE self-guide brochures. Get your FREE eGuide ‘What to do and see in Auckland‘. And get our monthly walk ideas delivered to your email inbox.  Just fill in your name and email address in the boxes on the right – and choose your walk. —->

Each self-guided circular urban walk two page brochure provides the following information:

  • a map and easy to follow detailed directions, that will keep you on track and deliver you right back to your starting point.
  • how to get there (we suggest by car, bus and train),
  • what to see (we take you on routes that are interesting and off-road as much as possible using Auckland’s existing paths, walkways and boardwalks through parks and nature reserves),
  • nearby children’s playgrounds,
  • a spot of history,
  • approximately how long it will take (walk routes are between 4 and 7 kms in length, some are flat, some are steep and some have steps),
  • if it’s dog-friendly (designated dogs off-leash areas within the walk) and
  • where to find the nearest café.

To give you a taste of what to expect, visit our blog which along with photographs, describes each completely different walk, the vast variety of sights, sounds and smells. Beaches, bush, volcanoes and urban. For all ages, weather and ability. Great views of the city, bird sanctuaries, wetlands, volcanoes, streams, farms, reserves, parks, coastal estuaries.

A series of 10 self-guide walk books is now available. Visit the book store.

  3. I would love to go back to Auckland and do some more walking. There is so much to see there. I lived there for 9 months in 1987/88, but unfortunately my ex-wife wasn’t into walking.
