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

This is a great little walk and a way to see both some of the major sites as well as some that are not so well known. In general the path is well marked with a few exceptions like a stretch around the university. However, go to the i-site near pier 5 and ask for the free city map. The... More

About 16 km of walking with only two main sites of interest along room, One Tree Hill and Mount Eden, but they both give great views over Auckland. There is a lot of walking on pavement by road and little through green space, except Cornwall park. The most disappointing thing is that if you start at the east (where you... More

We were advised to start the walk from Onehunga and I was glad we did. Coming from the viaduct side is more steeper. The walk takes you through residential streets, several parks with great views of Auckland. It took us a leisurely four and a half hours with lunch at the winter garden in Auckland domain the 13 km point.... More

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.
