This path offers a unique experience along the foreshore of the Manukau Harbour.
The path starts in Ambury Regional Park and winds along a gravel path along the coastal edge. There are also other parking spaces along the path if you choose to start elsewhere.
The foreshore has several examples of volcanic activity, including remnants of lava flows running into the harbour, and the Māngere Lagoon explosion crater.
You'll also find the Villa Maria vineyard and winery is alongside the path, which provides great vistas to Puketutu Island.
There are multiple bird roosts which have been established along the coast and some great information signage about the birds that migrate to this area. The foreshore is an extremely important habitat for a range of migratory birds.
The path is largely flat, but will require a moderate level of confidence to negotiate.
