Less than an hour out of Auckland, the Awhitu Peninsular stretching from Waiuku to the Manukau Heads is an area of outstanding scenic beauty with extensive views along the West Coast, Tasman Sea and back over the Manukau Harbour.
Set on private farmland, the Sunset Coast Walk, takes you through rolling farmland to the more rugged contour along the West Coast. Ranging from pushchair possible to more challenging hillsides, there are sea & harbour views on all walks and cliff top views on the three longer walks.
There will be a complementary cold drink and hot sausage waiting for you when you return from your walk. Bring your water bottle, good walking shoes, a picnic lunch, or purchase an extra sausage to enjoy in the shade of the trees. This is not a competitive walk but a chance for families to walk at your own pace and enjoy the surroundings.
