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

Long time resident of Auckland decided to do walk on a wet spring afternoon. Enjoyed seeing new sites. Agree signage is a little hit and miss, so take a map.

The signage is the pits. So you know, when walking from the city the signs are orange with a white arrow in the center, light blue with a white arrow walking back from Onehunga to Auckland. Some of the signs are a halfway decent sized square but some are a pretty small circle. But the biggest problem is they're not... More

We got dropped off at Onehunga to start the walk. The signs aren't brilliant in places so make sure you download the map or pick one up. The walk takes you through some lovely green spaces such as Cornwall Park, One Tree Hill, Mount Eden and Auckland Domain. The views are wonderful from One Tree Hill and Mount Eden, the... More

This trip is well worth while but it is a solid 4 hours of walking. There are plenty of interesting places to stop along the way - harbor, domain, mt eden, one tree, wintergardens, space observatory. We didnt complete the last part of the walk but walked to the dress smart outlet shopping centre which is in onehunga mall from... More

Took the bus to Onehunga to start the 16km walk. Absolute beautiful views. Make sure you download the map. Signage is good but in some places not so clear. Take snacks/water so you can sit and enjoy the views. Watch your cap, as it's very windy on One Tree Hill. Thoroughly recommend it!
