I did this walk with a group of people. We went bit offtrack as well and ended up walking nearly 26 Km., and it took us about 9 hours, including lunch break, fun breaks. We covered the mount eden, and one tree hill as part...More

We enjoyed this walk. It was quite strenuous at times but worth the effort. Some great views of the city. A good opportunity to see different neighbourhoods and landscapes.

The Coast to Coast is a great way to see many parts of Auckland, including One Tree Hill and Mt Eden, which both offer super views. The walk is lengthy and hilly, so a reasonable level of fitness is needed. None of the visitor centres...More

A great urban walk covering everything from the quay, CBD, Mt Eden, One Tree Hill, the uni and some really nice sections of suburbia. A hard walk with plenty of hills, but worth the effort. Public transport at both ends, cafes along the way etc...More

Having done the bus tours this was a great way to see and get to know an unfamiliar city even better. It takes you past some of the key spots like One Tree Hill, Mount Eden and Auckland Domain. Although the walk probably flows better...More

I visited Auckland for business but took some extra leave to do this walk. My ambition is to (mostly) run it in future but I walked it quite quickly mostly because I was tight for time. I agree that the signage is not obvious/easy to...More

Not the main Coast-to-Coast Walkway but a great Auckland coastal walk. Starting from Takapuna (convenient car park area at the bottom of the Promenade) the walk to Milford Bay takes 45 minutes for the average walker. It does, however, have some challenging rock area during...More

No, you don't need to book. It is something you can do on your own, as it is a walk across the city and some parks. However, try to find a decent map, as the signs are lacking and you can add a lot of mileage if you get... More
