Ara Hills

5-minute cycle from Ara Hills to the Orewa Estuary Path

Jump on to this Great family-friendly walk or ride along the water's edge, through parks and bush trails. The route loops around the beautiful Ōrewa estuary, exploring the natural and historical significance of the area.

Enjoy estuary views while spotting wildlife, paddle boarders and kite surfers. The path features Māori carvings and tributes to the estuary's past as a significant food gathering place for Māori.

The wide path is mainly flat and sealed, so it is suitable for all fitness levels. It's an excellent ride for people new to cycling, or riding with children on bikes or scooters.

Te Ara Tahuna Pathway makes for a great day out!
