Details

An entertaining four hour Māori and European history experience for walking enthusiasts run by the city's original walking tour company - Auckland Walks.

Rich encounters with a thousand years of history since Māori first settled in Tāmaki Makaurau, 'the land desired by many'.

Starting at Ōrākei Train Station (parking available, or you can train out from Britomart), the walk follows the original, distorted and vanishing shoreline via the life and times of Scottish pioneer Logan Campbell, taking in parts of Ōrākei, Hobson Bay, Parnell and the lower city where his life was played out.

Includes the trials and tribulations of Auckland's early growth, social history, historic places and some public art.

The walk concludes at Britomart for an easy train ride back to Ōrākei Station if required.
