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.
