Our walk takes us through the inner city, learning about Auckland’s history from early Māori habitation through to modern new developments. We are known as the city of sails but what is even more unique is that we are a city of extinct volcanoes. We weave our way down side streets and lanes, some of it on reclaimed land, past the Art Gallery and into Albert Park. We walk through Auckland University, where we see a Māori marae and a Fale Pasifika. We return to our meeting point via the entertainment area of Aotea Square, Queen Street and side streets, pointing out places of significance along the way. Auckland is undergoing a great re-vitalisation so there has never been a better time to explore our great inner city.
All this walking will make us thirsty so we finish our tour at an opulent art-deco restaurant for a welcome tea/coffee plus snacks e.g. pastries and or scones and or sandwiches (included in the tour cost).
