It's ok to take it in sections

You don't have to do it all on one day. But using it as a path, it's a great way to see the city. Make sure to take a map as signage is practically non-existent.

We did this walk on what Kiwis called a hot day, but not too bad, with lots of shade. The walk itself was excellent, with great views from Mt Eden, lovely parks like Albert Park, and lots of lovely homes in the various suburbs. However, signage left something to be desired, especially coming off Mt Eden, causing us to walk... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the walk. We started at the ferry dock in the city center and finished at Onehunga. Like other reviewers, we often lost the way. There are frequent signs when you do not need them, but rarely a sign when there is a critical decision to make. But, these are city and suburban streets, not some wild back... More

This is such a good way to get fit, see the views and get intimate with Auckland's volcanic cones. Take the bus back to the start at the end

This could have been one of the best things to do in Auckland but it appears that Auckland is really NOT serious about attracting tourists. We decided to get a taxi to the top of Mt Eden and then use the walkway to go into the city. Probably the best way to see the city sights etc has been totally... More

We walked Ferry Building to Onetunga direction, which is west to east. The distance is 16 Km, and our reasonably fit 11 and 14 year olds had no troubles. The hardest thing about this walk is finding out about it. The Auckland iSite at the Sky Tower did not even mention it when I asked for "a city walk". Thankfully... More

I did the walk starting from Onehunga (took the bus out to the start) and back to the Viaduct. Having mixed feelings about Auckland this walk totally changed my perspective on the city and showed me areas I wouldn't have otherwise seen. It's a straightforward walk, you need a map as I found without one I went off track a... More

I decided to do this walk one afternoon in the Viaduct Harbour to Onehunga direction. It's great way to see all the sites the city has to offer in the form of a pretty cool adventure. Met some pretty interesting people along the way too! Definitely take a map, as others have said, the signage is pretty poor. I did... More

I went for this hike with my mom, sister and friend and enjoyed it very much. We saw only a handful of people on the trail and had amazing views from end to end. We even met a couple of guys who were fishing who had some orcas swim right up next to them just off of the trail. They... More

I found this route to be highly beneficial and rewarding. I did it over a 2 day stretch so I was able to soak up the scenery and stop off at various places en route. The parks and gardens one walks through are perfect for stopping for a packed lunch or drink and having a read. Really a great way... More
