Hobsonville Point is an old Air Force community that is being redeveloped as a well planned urban environment. This walk or ride around Hobsonville Point makes a great Saturday or Sunday excursion. The route is mainly off-road paths and shared spaces. It's mostly sealed with short sections of gravel by the coast. It's an easy recreational route that's great for children cycling with adults and inexperienced cyclists. Start on Buckley Avenue outside the visitor centre, or at the wharf (which offers four rental bikes). You can reach Hobsonville Point by ferry including on weekends.Cycle or stroll down to the wharf. You’ll find a bike maintenance stand and photo-worthy Virginia King sculpture inspired by traditional Māori hīnaki (eel traps). Take in the stunning views along the waterfront as you walk or cycle past The Landing and Bomb Point. You'll pass historic buildings from the old Air Force community, including old barracks and hangars. At Bomb Point, make sure you stop to explore the old munitions stores where artists have been commissioned to brighten them up with some great art.At Onekiritea Park there's an off-leash dog exercise area - check signage for details. Enjoy the farmers market (weekends from 9am to 1pm). Here you can sample artisan food, enjoy live music and stock up on gourmet meats and fresh, locally grown produce. Or pack a picnic and find your own spot by the water. If the kids have energy to burn from those tasty market treats, head to the nature-inspired playground on Buckley Avenue. Hobsonville Point still has a lot of construction going on so keep an eye out for changes in layout.
