Walk the Beauty of East Auckland

East Auckland walks include exploring the heights of Pigeon Mountain, with its panoramic views that make the climb so worth it. Botany and Dannemora bring their own charm, with a mix of suburban vibes and hidden trails that I’m always excited to discover.

Whitford Beach and the Turanga Creek Walk offer a serene escape on the coast. 

Howick and Beachlands bring their own charm, with a mix of suburban vibes and hidden trails that I’m always excited to discover. 

I have over 150+ walks in Auckland, hope you find a few to enjoy!
