Takapuna-Milford heritage walk

What you will see on the Takapuna-Milford heritage walk

See the starting point for this walk on Google Maps.

The walk is mainly along public road and paths and highlights historical facts about the buildings and the area.

We recommend the walk be undertaken at low tide when the fossil forest is most visible and the foreshore more accessible.

Start at the Takapuna boat ramp on The Promenade. On your left towards the main road you will see a group of 200 year old pōhutukawa and the iconic Mon Desir building.

This walk will take approximately two hours.
