Turitea and Adderstone Walkways

If you're keen to sight-see and work up a sweat, but don't want to break your back doing so, give the Turitea and Adderstone Walkway a go.

Cross Pacific Drive to continue along the Adderstone Walkway to Aokautere Drive. Work up an appetite and after exiting the walkway, you will arrive near the Summerhill Shopping Centre for refreshments and toilets.
