Southern Walkway

Location
Starts at Oriental Parade (the walkway entrance is sign-posted and begins near the intersection of Oriental Parade and Carlton Gore Road.
Description

The Southern Walkway guides you along the Town Belt from Oriental Parade to Island Bay. The greatest attraction of this walkway is the variety of scenery, from views of the harbour and central city at Oriental Bay, the shade and tranquility of the Town Belt forest to the rugged and exposed southern coastline between Houghton and Island Bays.

Although the walk is steep in places, it is not difficult overall and is suitable for those of average fitness.
