Auckland Domain walks

The Auckland Domain is home to several great walking and running trails. Among these are the Domain Walk, Centennial Walkway and the Lovers' Walk.

The Domain Walk

The Domain Walk will take you from the Domain's Parnell entrance to Lower Domain Drive, near Stanley Street, via the Parnell Rail Station.

This walk takes you through native bush and takes about 20 minutes in either direction.

Centennial Walkway

Centennial Walkway runs from Grafton Mews up to the Duck Ponds in the heart of the Domain.

Throughout the Domain are a number of walks through native bush.

Lovers' Walk

Lovers' Walk is a 500m bush path that runs parallel to Centennial Walkway.

The Glade path links Lower Domain Drive to Lovers Lane.

The Nīkau Walk links Glade path to the middle of Lovers' Walk.

There's also what is called Lovers Lane, a tree lined paved surface that runs from lower Domain Drive to the Crescent, and a section of Grandstand Road between Kiosk Road and the Grandstand.
