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 Tree Hill. A beautiful park. We walked between lambs and sheep who stood grazing. The walk really takes you from park to park with some links between through residential areas and the university. This made it more pleasing to the eye, but I thought it would take us along main streets that would offer up a lunch and/or coffee choice. This not to be. Would recommend you take a picnic and some water.There is a café in your first park but in our experience the coffee was like dishwater and lukewarm. We thought we'd buy lunch later..... but there was no later. After 4 hours of up hill and down, we'd made it back to the Auckland Domain and took a side trip to the Auckland Museum. Our feet were pretty tired by this time so didn't have a good long around but from our brief viewing would recommend this too. Did find food though! Really enjoyed the walk. Fantastic views. Gave us a much better idea of the landscape in which Auckland sits. Undeniably beautiful.
