Waikanae River Walk
Walk or Cycle the Waikanae River
- our favourite local walk
No matter what your fitness level, you will enjoy the Waikanae River walk. Both the north and south banks of Waikanae River have excellent walking and cycling tracks. The south bank meanders through parkland and trees, while the north bank takes in the estuary with its prolific bird life and wonderful coastal views. There are several foot bridges that cross the river so you can enjoy both sides. The scenery is stunning: you will want to take photos and you may want to take a picnic to enjoy on one of the many reserves along the way. Or there are several cafes not far off the track. Bikes can be hired from nearby Waikanae Cycles and maps provided.
