An easy walk to the beach at Fitzpatrick Bay in Chatswood, on Auckland's North Shore.
The gravel path starts at the end of Balmain Road. The path is wide with a gentle slope down to the beach, suitable for pram or wheelchair.
Follow the path through Kauri Point Domain, along the edge of coastal bush featuring kauri trees. The walk offers great views over the Upper Waitematā Harbour.
The path leads down to secluded Fitzpatrick Bay beach, a small sandy bay framed by cliffs and the surrounding coastal forest. There is a large grassed area by the beach which makes it a perfect place for a swim (at high tide) and a picnic lunch afterwards.
Dogs will love the off-leash area at the beach.
There are plenty of small side tracks for more adventurous walkers to explore, either up into the pine trees, or out through the mangroves and saltmarsh.
