This is a great hike for the family. It is mostly covered so should be good even on hot sunny days. The change of scenery from thick tree cover to half covered trail, then along the water is nice. Without spoiling the surprises, there are plenty of features, stops, and views to kept it interesting and fun.Show more

Length: 0.6 mi • Est. 16 m
A popular picturesque paved stroll to the Punakaiki "pancake" rocks and a surge pool with interesting interpretive signage along the way. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved and typically at least three feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated 5% or less except for steep 10% sections at about 0.4 and 0.5 miles when going counterclockwise). Some of the viewpoints require staircases for access.Show more

Length: 1.1 mi • Est. 33 m
This walk is quite busy and used by dog walkers and baby in trolleys. It’s well maintained and nice combination with open spaces overlooking the old quarry and lush bush that provide some shade. Nice short but sweet walk with the dog! https://ccc.govt.nz/parks-and-gardens/explore-parks/port-hills/halswell-quarry/halswell-quarry-walksShow more

Length: 0.8 mi • Est. 24 m
Short track leading to a great view of the beach and stairs that can be taken down to the beach. The sand covers rocks in places and can go from soft to hard quickly and sporadically. Not much traffic in the area and can allow for some seclusion. Please note that parking is on the inside of a curve so be careful of traffic. Show more

This is a wonderfully varied oasis in the middle of suburbia, where you can go for an easy walk around one of several extremely well maintained gravel tracks, see wetland flora & fauna, roam through a gum forest, read beautiful information boards about the ecology and history of the area, exercise the dogs and let the children run safely.Show more
