After a 14 hour fligh from the US, I needed to stretch my legs - and what better way to do that than by walking the 16km Coast-to-Coast Walkway. This was fantastic! I felt I was literally walking through the backyards of the locals who live in the diverse neighborhoods I passed through. For the most part, the trail was... More

Went from Onehunga through areas with historic villas and shanties. Great view from One Tree Hill - the hill without the tree. Stopped about half way for lunch and then climbed Mount Eden for another perspective of the city. Nice walk through the Domain, into the city and then on to Viaduct Harbour at the finish. If you've lived in... More

The walk itself would take about only four hours, but stopping at all the points of the interest would make for a wonderful full day trip. The signs are lacking in some parts of the walk, so be sure to have your smartphone with GPS ready.

Downtown Auckland can be quite sleepy on Sundays so this is a perfect way to spend the weekend day as it allows for seeing a lot of landmarks, neighborhoods and parks in combo with getting exercise. We left from the Viaduct and walked east-west to Onehunga where we were lucky enough to have friends pick us up for a return... More

This is a great way to get a feel for many neighborhoods of Auckland as well as some of the parks and landmarks. We tend to be fast walkers and it still took us the majority of a day to complete (after a leisurely breakfast). We got off track a few times because the signs were occasionally difficulty to find...

We chose to start the Coast to Coast Walk at its southern end, Manukau Harbour. For 4.50 NZD you can take either the bus or the train from Auckland CBD to get there. The main walk (without excursions such as the summit of One Tree Hill) is 16 km long. It is advertised to take about 4 hours (again, without... More

There is a walk that you can do which takes you from the east coast of Auckland to the west coast. It's 16km in length, and well worth doing. It takes about 4 hours straight, but we would recommend taking your time and having breaks along the way. The walk takes you from the Aqueduct through a number of suburbs,... More

Blessed with a blue sky day, we took the bus to Onehunga to start the walk. We'd got a map from the Information office in downtown Auckland and found that there are a number of buses that go to Onehunga by the Civic Theatre. Ride costs $4.50 per person and takes approx. 30 minutes. First uphill stood before us. One... More

Walk was fairly good but the path took you through a number of regular suburbs as well as the well known parks of Auckland. Would have been more fun to go along better known parts of Auckland. Good way to kill a day.

I did this walk from the Manukau Harbour to Queen's Wharf with a group of 75 Year 5 children from my son's school. The fact that all of them completed it without too much fuss would indicate that the walk is not only a good distance, but has plenty to keep even 9-year-olds happy along the way. The signposting is... More
