Waiheke Island: Stunning coastal headlands, enclaves of native bush, and pristine white sandy beaches.
Escape city life in just 35 minutes by ferry on Sunday 17 October 2021 and enjoy Matiatia to Park Point via Church Bay, Coastal Track.
Commencing at Matiatia, Medium party and Longer party will go to Park Point followed by a short walk to the Pio Rehutai Reserve, a bush walk to the trig overlooking the island, then following the marked track to Blackpool, into Oneroa.
Medium party will then follow tracks from Oneroa to Matiatia. Longer party will go from Oneroa to Owhanake via a short stretch of road then on the coastal track back to Matiatia.
A reasonable level of fitness is required as there are numerous steps on both sections of this walk.
Waiheke often enjoys warmer weather than Auckland. Bring plenty of water, togs if you want a swim, camera, lunch, and snacks. You might even get the chance to buy some Waiheke wine, olives, or oil.
