Excellent way to see the city, get your bearings, and visit 3 excellent Auckland parks. The trail leads through the Auckland Domain which has historic buildings, statues, art, a fernery, the Wintergarten, and the Auckland Museum. It leads you to the top of Mt Eden which has panoramic views and a volcanic crater. It leads through Cornwall Park which has... More

Overall a good walk but it rained most of the time my family was on the walk. We got lost a few times so I recommend bringing a printed map of the route. The coast to coast walkway is a great place to see the city of Auckland.

I'm a life-long Auckland resident and this was the first time I'd attempted walking the Coast-to-Coast walkway. We decided to take some of the advice on Trip Advisor and take the suburban train out to Onehunga and walk back into the city. I also took on board people's feedback that in places the signage wasn't the best so printed out... More

This is no easy 10 mile walk. There are ups and downs, some confusion as to where the trail actually is, and you can easily get caught in one of Auckland's surprise rain showers. That being said, there are some really amazing views, parks, and trees you'll see on this trek. Mount Eden and One Tree Hill are active volcanoes... More

We started at onehunga which was a good move as it gets more interesting as you go along....... The walk says it's 16km but don't believe it. I tracked it and it was 19 & no w didn't go the wrong way. Talking about that, it would be very easy to go wrong as the signs are dreadful. I would... More

This one is a must do for people who'd like to discover Auckland central area. It will take you from the south harbour of Manukau to the city central of Waitemata. A good walk inside Auckland beautiful parks, volcanoes and historical sites.

After having spent a few days in Auckland I wanted to do something less crowded with tourists, so I chose to do the Coast to Coast walkway, starting from the pier and walking South. It was a bit hard in the beginning to tune into the signage, and the signs were missing at some places, so the paper map of... More

Even if you only get on a very small portion of this track, DO IT! The Coast-to_coast Walkway is one of many New Zealand treasured nature tracks and a must do.

I grabbed a map from the airport before heading to my hostel in Auckland. I stayed at The attic backpackers which was only a 5 min walk from start of walk near the Wharf. This was a beautiful scenic walk through the city. I followed map (not many signage) to Mt. Eden and then hiked to the top. Beautiful way... More

On our first day in Auckland, we were looking forward to discover the city by doing the coast to coast walk. We went to the tourist office, where we were given a map (printed from a sort of Google site...) but the map was useless because it did not give the names of the roads, so we never knew where...
