About the path

This is a great way to see the city centre.

Start outside the Ferry Building and head into the Viaduct Harbour, where there are heaps of food and beverage choices.

Cutting through the plaza, you can connect up with the Nelson Street cycleway. Here you'll find the award winning Light Path – Te Ara I Whiti. The climb up Nelson Street will be worth it.

There is a steep section down Grafton Gully, where you travel beneath the historic Grafton Bridge.

There's plenty of signage and signalised bike crossing along the way.

Fill up your water bottles at the top of Nelson Street.

Public artwork is dotted on or close by the route.
