A peaceful bushwalk along the rugged coastline, with great views of the Manukau Harbour. The track is known as Te Ara o Tiriwa (The Pathway of Tiriwa – the legendary high priest of the Waitākeres).
Start at the end of Portage Road and follow the steps down to Tauihu/Green Bay Beach. At low tide, children can hunt for crabs and sea anemone before starting on their walk.
At the eastern side of the beach, there are steps leading to a coastal walkway along the edge of the Manukau Harbour. Follow the path to Taunton Terrace, and then around the coast to Āmio/Blockhouse Bay Beach Reserve.
Paths are generally gravel with some boardwalks and stairs. There are some steep areas with steps - take care as these can be muddy in winter.
The bushwalk sections are shaded, so a good option if you're keen to get out but avoid the direct sun.
The path ends at Blockhouse Bay Beach - a great spot for picnics, paddling and bird watching. Kids will love the pirate ship themed playground and huge tunnel slide right next to the beach.
