We haven’t done any walking on Waiheke Island. Firstly, there are the ferry costs and the time it takes to get there. Secondly, from what we can find online, there are quite a few routes already documented. So if you are holidaying there or living there and wish to explore, there are some very good resources.
You can find eight walking maps from Auckland Council here.
Each November a Walking Festival is held on Waiheke Island, with a selection of 45 walks. It is important to book in advance. For more details click here.
