Event description
Thanks to AT, Got To Get Out is hosting a series of free outdoor events to encourage our community to explore Auckland on foot or bike!

About this event

Please note the new date for this event is now 11th June due to construction of our walking route!

Have you #gottogetout and explore Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland?

Thanks to Auckland Transport, Got To Get Out is hosting a series of free outdoor events to encourage our community to try walking & cycling for getting to work / school / leisure.

We’re also profiling new cycleways and commuter routes, and showcasing public transport options like bus and trains as a great way to get to your adventures.

About your free guided activity:

This easy grade walk from New Lynn train station to Avondale, via a BRAND NEW route along the rail line from New Lynn Station through green spaces to just east of Blockhouse Bay Road. The path will be mostly off-road and will cross the Whau River on a new purpose-built bridge (which will stand alongside the existing rail bridge). Read all about it here https://at.govt.nz/projects-roadworks/new-lynn-to-avondale-shared-path/#route

Expect great korero / chats with other outdoor lovers, a chance to make new friends, and get some fitness!

To get there:
