“Great place to go for a walk or ride around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We are holidaying at Mt Maunganui and I have cycled from the Mount and around the Estuary walkway cycleway several times. Well maintained track, and lots to see on the way.

“Lovely Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Take the Maxwell st entry some walking shoes and stroll on off.
This is a lovely walk along the estuary- on a path (so no getting wet)
Watch the traffic and life zip on by over the otherside of the water, and relax on your walk with the birds and sea life.
A nicely treed walk with a section being dedicated bush
No issues about terrain and it is flat!

“Great Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

A fantastic place for a walk; whether you do the whole 10kilometres (about 1.5 hours) or just a section of it. Stop for a coffee or a meal at Central Trades Park on Chapel Street along the way. The Daisy Hardwick Walkway on the Otumoetai side includes a great little bush walk.

“BEAUTIFUL WALK SO CLOSE TO HOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Great 2 hour walk or 1 hour bike ride - or longer if you stop for coffee at Bay Central. Stunning boardwalk through the wetlands and quiet bush via the Daisy Hardwick walkway. 2 mins from my house so blissful.......

“Great Walk, run or bike ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

All up its about 10kms and takes around 1.25hrs to walk - at a good pace. Lovely shaded bush parts with lots of bird life, work recently done on the boardwalk, a sense of achievement when finished.
