About the path

A relatively easy walking track along the coast of the Manukau Harbour in picturesque Ambury Regional Park. The coast is a significant habitat for shorebirds and has examples of basalt lava flows.

Access the track from the far end of the main car park. Follow the yellow markers and discover the local history of the area through information panels along the way. The grass track will take you across open pasture to the foreshore.

Birds roost on the rocks and on the small shelly beaches, and gather food from the mud flats at low tide. Keen bird watchers have identified more than 86 species of birds at Ambury.

There are plenty of lookout points along the way to admire the great coastal views.

The path is often windswept so pack an extra layer of clothing.

For a great family day out, combine this walk with the Ambury Farm Loop where you can meet sheep, lambs (seasonal), goats, pigs and other farm animals.

Dogs are prohibited from the Ambury Foreshore Loop and most areas of the regional park (but are permitted on-leash on the Ambury Farm Loop walk).
