Walking and cycling

Walk this way

Tāmaki Makaurau is a place for everyone to get active. No matter who you are or what you're into, Auckland has no shortage of scenic spots you can experience through walking, running or cycling.

Hit the road

Whether you're keen to explore Auckland’s coastline, marvel at a waterfall, walk the dog, or follow a walkway or a track to a lookout, there’s something for you.

When nature calls

Walking and cycling are not only free, environmentally friendly ways to enjoy the great outdoors, they also lower the risk of heart disease and stroke, help strengthen bones, reduce body fat and boost muscle power and endurance.

Stress less

Getting exercise by biking or walking can increase blood flow, release endorphins, and reduce overall stress. Even if you can only manage 30 minutes a day, you'll notice immediate mental health benefits as well as an energy boost.
