This walk in Auckland, takes us from the ridge of Remuera Village,  down to the edge of Hobson Bay walkway, onto a boardwalk amongst the mangroves via reserves and the Remuera mansions. You really get to know a city when you walk – we miss so much when we travel by car. This walk reveals some hidden Auckland gems.

Waiata Reserve is tucked in between Victoria Avenue and Orakei Road – a beautiful large space –  this is a dog friendly walk with an off-leash area.

Cafe Greenfingers at Palmers Garden Centre on Shore Road is a great little cafe – the coffee is very good and so is the food.

This walk is one to do if fitness is a criteria – there is a decent uphill.  It can also be done in all weathers as all the paths are paved.

Could you please tell me how to get to Remurea and Hobson Bay Walkway Circut or supply a map showing access?


Hello Pamela,
Apologies for my slow response, I had a busy weekend.
I am sorry as much as would love to, I don’t give away all my walks for free (hopefully one day I will find an advertising sponsor who will cover my costs).
You can purchase my map and detailed route from the shopping cart at this link

(we give away our maps now)

Best wishes,
