Best walks in Auckland

We don’t really think that there are any best walks in Auckland – they all are great. But to fit each area of Auckland into a handy size book, we did have to choose some of our favourite short walks to share with you, as we could not include them all.

As with all our books, these ones include maps, directions, colour photos plus other bits of information (places of interest, playgrounds, dog off leash exercise areas, cafes, picnic sites).  They will help guide you/and your friends and family, as you discover the hidden gems of Auckland.

These “Best walks in Auckland” books will become available from Amazon and your local Auckland library.
