About the path

Enjoy the history and charm of Auckland’s waterfront. Whether it be a family day out or a relaxing day with friends, there is so much to see and experience by foot or bike.

Start your stroll or ride along Curran Street in Herne Bay. You'll find street parking here, or good nearby public transport.

Nearby Point Erin Pool is a great spot for family fun during summer, with an outdoor pool, dive pool, hydro slides, spa, toddlers’ pool and family basketball court.

Cross under the Auckland Harbour Bridge and admire stunning harbour views along the Westhaven Promenade. This is a great spot to view the sparkling Vector lights on the Harbour Bridge after dark.

Head left up Beaumont Street to Silo Park. Silo Park is a hub of events: markets, outdoor movies, festivals and more.

Daldy Street Park will keep kids of all ages busy with a basketball court, playground, water play area and 7.5m slide.

Further down Daldy Street, explore the community garden at the Dockline Tram Shed, Auckland Fish Market, or have a go on the public piano in the blue container.

Don't miss the Sounds of Sea (2009-2011, Company) and Wind Tree (1972, Michio Ihara) sculptures on North Wharf.

Dip your toes in the water at Karanga Plaza and admire the city view. At the kiosk there's even a bike fix-it stand on hand if you want to do a quick tune-up.

Continue over Te Wero Bridge to the Viaduct precinct. There's plenty to see and do here, including sampling local restaurants and discovering New Zealand’s seafaring history at the Maritime Museum.
