About the path

Enjoy a scenic shared path following the eastern edge of Te Atatū Peninsula. The path connects Harbourview-Orangihina Park to Harbourview Beach Reserve.

The compacted gravel path is suitable for walking and cycling. It's pram friendly, though there are a couple of narrow bridges which won’t fit a double buggy. The shared path is mostly flat with some ups and downs.

Start at the car park entrance to Harbourview-Orangihina Park, off Te Atatu Road. The path winds along the coast, and there's plenty of places to stop and enjoy the stunning views of the Waitemata Harbour and Auckland city skyline.

The path finishes at Harbourview Beach Reserve, where you can enjoy more great views from the picnic area. Public toilets are located here.

If you want to keep exploring, continue walking north on the Harbourside Path. Try to spot native birds like dotterel, pūkeko and tōrea (oystercatchers).
