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
