This 16km walk through the city has surprising amount of diversity taking in CBD, parks, volcanoes and residential areas. Although it's pretty well signposted, there were a couple of times where signs were missing or not easy to spot - there is a map that can be downloaded onto your phone before you start.

This is a great walk, from one park to another with transitions largely in residential neighborhoods. I (a woman) walked it alone and at no time was I concerned about safety (except crossing the street with traffic going the "wrong" way). The route takes you *past* One Tree Hill, but of course I went to the top, from which there... More

This was a great idea. We got to see so much of the city in one day. But it is not easy, its a long walk, sometimes pretty steep and uneven ground as you head up the volcanoes etc, I dont think you need to be super fit but those with moblitiy issues would be in trouble. Incredible views from... More

At one end is a motorway and lots of pylons! but it is well worth the views at Mount Eden. At times I felt i may not be on the right path but usually if you kept going forward you would end up finding the arrows! great to get a sense of the city.

I agree with a previous reviewer - head north! We caught the train from Britomart to Onehunga ($5 and about 20 min ride). The walk is lovely and mainly through parks. Signage was great but still a good idea to have the map with you. It is an easy walk and a lovely way to get out of the CBD... More

I am an Auckland local and I love this walk. It doesn't matter which way you walk from, Onehunga has really nice cafés on Onehunga Mall Rd, the buses and train also come near here. This is about a 10min walk East from the Onehunga finish sign. It will take about 5 hours, I'd suggest going up the summit of... More

This is about an 8 mile walk, with varying views. For us it was over a 10 mile hike because of poor route marking (Thank goodness for helpful residents). There is a fair amount of elevation gain You will see most of what Auckland has to offer. Some of the views are stunning. Be aware - some of the route... More

We walked this on the Sunday of a long weekend which would have made a difference. I was glad I had a map because some siganage was missing and there were a few confusing turns but we were pleased with how much of the city we saw from the ground as well as the vantage points we passed through. The... More

I recommend starting in Onehunga and heading up North to end with a buzz at Viaduct Harbour - otherwise your triumphant arrival at Onehunga Bay Reserve is a bit of a buzzkill - there is nothing there!!! The walk is not your usual hike, it links parks and green areas, but the bulk of it is through suburbs and streets.... More

We decided to do the coast to coast walkway after reading on tripadvisor that it was a great way to see lots of different sites in the city that you would not see otherwise, including Mt Eden, Albert Park, Univesrity Campus and Cornwell Park. These sights were all beautiful and unique in their own way. We weren't overly impressed with... More
