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!

Did this walk last month on a lovely sunny Sunday. Started from Onehunga end and as an Aucklander was taken through areas I would never have been aware of otherwise. Good signage although a little confusing coming up to the Auckland Domain but we had our smart phones at hand...other than that was fab. Good to finish off the walk... More

Landed in Auckland in the early morning after a >15 hour flight from the east coast of US. My husband and I had decided we would attempt the coast-to-coast walk if we were feeling halfway decent. After checking into the hotel we had a leisurely breakfast and then started for the coast. This was the best decision we could have... More

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
