About the path
Walk through rolling farmland at Duder Regional Park, and experience some of the best coastal views in the Auckland region.
Duder Regional Park is located on the pōhutukawa fringed Whakakaiwhara Peninsula, a popular place for fishing, picnics, boating and camping.
Start the Farm Loop Walk at the main car park and follow the red route markers. You'll be walking on grass and gravel tracks and peacefully grazing sheep and cows around the parkland.
Climb the hill to Oturia Trig station. Enjoy stunning views over the Hauraki Gulf and beautiful white sand Umupuia Beach. Umupuia Beach is a great spot to visit for a swim, picnic and to relax after your walk.
The route merges with the Duder Sustainable Trail for most of the return loop. Here you'll learn how Duder Regional Park is walking the talk on sustainability.
If you want to extend your walk, connect onto the Whakakaiwhara Pā Walk from the Farm Path. Follow the blue markers from to the end of the peninsula to see the earthwork remains of this fortified Māori settlement.
Duder is a working farm - please leave gates as you find them. Dogs are not allowed in Duder Regional Park.
