About the path

A great walk through lovely Remuera village, taking you past historic buildings and peaceful Waiata Reserve, with views to Ohinerau (Mount Hobson).

The route uses the footpath, including a path through Waiata Reserve. It's mainly flat, with some small hills especially in the reserve areas.

Begin the loop walk at Remuera Library, an architectural gem in the heart of Remuera. Collect a pamphlet from the library with information about the Remuera Heritage Walk. Turn right when you come out of the Library and continue down Remuera Road towards the Anglican Parish Church of St Aidan, built in 1905.

Cross over to Ōrākei Road and walk to Waiata Reserve, a beautiful park with mature trees. In te reo Māori, Waiata loosely translates as ‘song’ - take time to listen to the different bird life abundant in the reserve. Meander your way across the reserve to Waiata Avenue (or take the longer track to Waimea Lane) to connect onto Victoria Avenue.

Continue back to the town centre along Victoria Avenue, where you'll see examples of early settler architecture. Turn right onto Remuera Road, past the historic post office building on the corner (now home to a bank).

Stroll along Remuera Road, taking in the architecture on Garden Road (former driveway to Ladies College where aviatrix Jean Batten was a student) and the Chapel of the Holy Child at Kings School.

Return to Remuera town centre via Market Road and Dromorne Road. After your walk, continue exploring the village shops or enjoy a bite to eat at one of the popular cafes.
