This is a great flat 5km loop trail with a nice variety of interest features to view, seats to sit on for those wanting to take a slower pace and exercise equipment for the more active.

Good and walking tracks along the river, Hatea River. Easy walk while enjoying the swamp, mature trees and bushes at the hilly green zone of Whangarei. The approx. 9 km long track divided into 3 section, named 1A, 1B and 1C. Section IA is from Whangarei Falls to Paranui Falls, near AH Reed Tree Top Track. Then section 1B is from AH Reed Tree Top Track to Mair Park, and the last 1C from Mair Park to Town Basin. The tracks are easy walking grade, good gravel road with few steps, timber walkways, a bit undulating but they are OK for any group of ages. Visitors have chances to go to more challenging hillier walks through Drummond and Dobbies Tracks from Mair Park Junction to Mount Parihaka, the picturesque look out to see Whangarei Township below.

What a lovely place to take the dog (or kids) for a walk! Beautiful, peaceful and safe. I love the atmosphere, lovely restaurants, shops to browse in, delicious ice cream and both ample toilet facilities and water fountains. I can't wait for my weekly visit!

Lots of interesting history outlined on walk. Fitness equipment here and there for gym bunnies and beginners alike. Great cafes at the town basin. Easy walk with plenty to see.

After quite some time of wanting to do this urban/riverside walk in my home town when visiting I finally got around to it just recently. It is flat and easy and can be done with prams or wheelchairs and also links in with other nearby walks such as Mair Park/Parihaka. Very pleasant on a nice day and not at all challenging. Start or end with a coffee/brunch or lunch at one of the Town Basin cafe/restaurants.

This track running alongside the Hatea River in Whangarei is quite delightful. Excellent scenery, very well maintained track, long enough for a decent walk and dog freindly (on a lead). Good parking at each end and at two points in the middle (Mair Park and AH Reed Memorial Kauri Park).

Literally best walk ever! Never had such fun out and about in the sun with my buddies, Jeff, Muzz and Jeff.

This is a lovely walk along the river, near the town basin, and you pass lots of sculptures along the way. Worth a visit.

I went this afternoon for a walk while in Whangarei. Was a great track with some lovely views in the sun. Really liked the bridge and was lucky enough to see the bridge being raised. Allowing time for photos it took me about 1h30min to complete 😊
