Easily accessed from the bottom of Upland Road or Lucerne Road, Remuera, the walkway provides a safe and scenic loop around the Orakei Basin, which was once a flooded volcanic crater with mangrove forest.
Now a sheltered environment used for recreational water sports, the Orakei Basin Walkway enables cyclists and walkers to share a purpose-built boardwalk, footbridge and track that circumnavigates the Basin. The full loop is approximately 2.9km, making it a great option for runners and walkers seeking inner-city off-road options away from the traffic. Close by are the Meadowbank and Orakei train stations for quick transport into town, and Remuera shopping centre is only a few minutes away by car or bus. This is also a dog-friendly walk with off-leash areas along the way, but not suitable for prams or wheelchairs due to stairs.
