A scenic walk on a track and sealed path and wooden path round a popular tidal pond. It's always different depending on the tide and time of day. Different water birds can be seen and when the tide is out, you can see tiny crabs scurrying for cover. The walk is heavily used not only by walkers but also by... More

I love the scenic walk around the estuary with all the boardwalks and informative signs. My children also enjoyed the walk for all the bird and fish life to see.

We loved the options you have with this walk. You can start at a variety of places and you can shorten it if weather is not co-operating or your young one spits the dummy like our 5 year old did. There is a playground near to Thames st too.

If a visitor to Napier only do this if time allows. It's okay, if your expectations are low. If you're a local or have a bit more time then I think you'll appreciate this more. Well set up track with some informative signs. The children's park at the start/finish obviously has a very different role at night judging my the... More

This is a great stroll around the estuary at Ahuriri. A lot of work has been done over the past few years to restore the wetlands, and it shows. A nice easy stroll always worth a visit to see the continual changes of nature. Child / wheelchair friendly.
