Waterfront cafes & bays running route

Duration: approximately 45 minutes one way | Distance: 9.5 kilometres

This flat and easy running route has spectacular coastal scenery, making it one of Auckland's most popular stretches of road for cyclists, rollerbladers, joggers and walkers. Begin at Queens Wharf and jog along Quay Street towards picturesque Tamaki Drive. On Tamaki Drive you will pass Okahu Bay, Kelly Tarltons Underwater World, Bastion Point and the Whenua Rangatira.

Continue through the hustle and bustle of Mission Bay cafes, restaurants and bars to Kohimarama Beach and Vellenoweth Green in St Heliers. This is the perfect place to finish with a drink at the beach, or for a quick breather before turning around and running all the way back again!
