Waipareira Walkway

​Description of Waipareira Walkway

Waipareira Walkway is a coastal walk along the inner reaches of the Waitematā Harbour in West Harbour.

It meanders in and around many little inlets, passing by wetlands and through native bush on its way from Luckens Reserve to Clearwater Cove Reserve.

You'll hear the squawks of the gulls and catch glimpses of bush birds like fantails and tūī.

The tide-soaked mangrove forest provides a buffer between land and sea and is a nursery for fish and a safe haven for the seabirds.

Take a break on one of the seats along the way and watch the Waitematā Harbour's ever-changing moods.

Luckens Reserve

At Luckens Reserve, you can have a picnic and play under the tall pines.

Check out the sculpture that commemorates the area's ceramic and clay history, then have a paddle at the little beach below.

Clearwater Cove

At Clearwater Cove, extend your walk by visiting the West Park Marina to watch the boats come and go.




Suitable for bikes, buggies and wheelchairs
